  • Illinois: Call your lawmakers in support of taxing and regulating cannabis for adults

    Calling your lawmakers is a quick way to make your voice heard. Senators and Representatives speak on behalf of their constituents, and this is a chance for you to encourage yours to support an end to cannabis prohibition in Illinois.

    Here are some things to keep in mind:

    • Ending marijuana prohibition will help reduce the underground cannabis trade and bring in important tax revenue. If we can control alcohol, we can control cannabis.
    • Depending on the time of day or week, you may end up talking with the lawmaker, a member of his or her staff, or you may need to leave a voice message.
    • If you are directed to voicemail, please leave a message with your name, hometown, and phone number. Expect to be asked for that information if speaking with a person.
    • If you have a personal story related to the harms of marijuana prohibition policies, please consider sharing it.
    • Always be polite – we are trying to persuade. Negative comments work against our efforts.

  • Ask your Del. representative to support expungement

    Please call your representative and ask for their vote in favor of SB 197, which would allow individuals to expunge marijuana offenses that were decriminalized in 2015. The measure would only apply to individuals with a single conviction.

  • Tell Congress to pass the STATES Act
    It's time for Congress to pass legislation that establishes marijuana policy as a states' rights issue. If a state decides to legalize, regulate, and tax marijuana, there should be no interference from the federal government.

    Although 29 states and the District of Columbia have approved laws to allow marijuana for either medical or adult use, federal law presents many challenges to marijuana businesses and regulators. 

    Bipartisan legislation introduced by Sens. Cory Gardner (R-CO) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) would protect states that legalize and regulate marijuana. The STATES Act is the most significant piece of marijuana-related legislation ever introduced in Congress.

    Please contact your Senators and Representative today and tell them to pass the STATES ACT and allow states to make their own decisions on marijuana policy.

  • Md.: Ask legislative leadership to let the people vote on marijuana legalization!

    Please call Senate President Mike Miller and House Speaker Mike Busch and ask for their support for moving Senate Bill 1039 or House Bill 1264 forward this year. Please be brief and respectful (how we say it is as important as what we say), and be prepared to leave a message with staff. Here are some brief talking points:

    • I am calling to request that [Speaker Busch/Senate President Miller] work to ensure the bills to allow voters decide marijuana legalization and regulation — House Bill 1264 / Senate Bill 1039 — receive a vote.
    • Sixty-four percent (64%) of likely Maryland voters support taxing and regulating marijuana, and we want to make our voices heard on Election Day!
    • Prohibition is a failure; cannabis is already being used by people across the state. The question isn’t whether people should use cannabis, it’s whether or not those who do should have to obtain it from gangs and cartels or be able to shop safely in lawful, taxed, regulated businesses. 
    • Let’s not wait any longer; we have five years of data from Colorado and Washington showing this reform is successful. 

    If you have a personal story about how prohibition has impacted you, you can share that as well. 

    After you call, please let us know how it went! 

  • MD: Ask your delegate to press for a vote on marijuana legalization referendum!
    Please call your state delegate who sits on the House Judiciary Committee and ask them to vote YES on HB 1264. Their phone number and name should appear below once you enter your information.

    • Please ask Chariman Vallario to call a vote on the marijuana referendum measure — HB 1264  — before the crossover deadline —  and vote “yes” on the bill. 
    • Sixty-four percent (64%) of likely Maryland voters support taxing and regulating marijuana, and we want to make our voices heard on Election Day!

  • MD: Ask the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee to move bill to protect medical cannabis patients’ rights.

    Please call your state Senator who sits on the Judicial Proceedings Committee and ask them to vote YES on SB 602. Please be brief and respectful (how we say it is as important as what we say), and be prepared to leave a message with staff. Here are some brief talking points:

    • Please vote YES on SB 602 before the crossover deadline so that this bill can be considered in the House. 

    • This bill isn’t really about gun rights — it’s about ensuring that medical cannabis patients have the same rights under state law as all other Marylanders. 

    • We should be encouraging patients to participate in the medical cannabis program, which the General Assembly and an overwhelming majority of Marylanders support. Medical cannabis is a safer alternative to the opioids that many patients are otherwise prescribed. 


    After you call, please let us know how it went! 


  • Ask your lawmakers to defend state medical marijuana programs
    Since December 2014, what is now called the Rohrabacher-Blumenauer amendment has prohibited the Justice Department from spending funds to interfere with the implementation of state medical marijuana laws. This amendment must be renewed each fiscal year in order to remain in effect and has been included in a series of spending bills approved from 2016 and this year, with the most recent extension expiring on March 23, 2018.

    With Attorney General Sessions threatening to ramp up enforcement of federal marijuana prohibition, this amendment is the only thing preventing medical marijuana patients and providers who are in compliance with state law from being targeted.

    Please tell your lawmakers to urge the Appropriations Committee to respect state law and include medical marijuana protections in the FY2018 spending bill. You can contact them directly using the email form below, or you can call the Appropriations Committee office at (202) 225-2771 to let them know voters want these protections to be a priority.

  • New Jersey: Thank Gov. Murphy for his commitment to legalizing marijuana and ask your lawmakers to follow suit!

     

  • N.H.: Urge your representatives to overturn the recommendation of the Ways and Means Committee on HB 656!

     

  • Improve MD's decriminalization law!
  • Take action now: Tell the Speaker patients deserve a floor vote!
    A majority in South Carolina’s House of Representatives supports our medical marijuana bill, H3521, but Speaker Lucas could try to stand in the way of a floor vote. 

    Tell him the time for delay is over. Patients deserve a vote on this important program. Please dial (803) 734-3125 right now and tell him patients deserve a vote!

    When you call: 

    • Be polite.
    • Tell the staff person your name and city or town of residence.
    • Tell Speaker Lucas’ staff you want him to allow H3521, the medical marijuana bill, to have a vote on the House floor as soon as possible.
    • That’s it! Call today!

  • South Carolina: Ask your representative to support a floor vote on medical marijuana

  • Urge your lawmakers to support compassionate legislation in South Carolina
  • Wyoming: Tell your lawmakers to decriminalize marijuana, not give people a felony record for it!

     

  • Ask your lawmakers to support sensible marijuana policies!

    The House Judiciary Committee will be considering a bill that would decriminalize less than one ounce of marijuana.

    You see, today Alabamans caught with small amounts of marijuana can be sent to jail for up to one year. These bills, HB 272 and SB 251, would change the penalty for possessing less than one ounce of marijuana to a violation instead of a misdemeanor. That means the penalty would be paying a fine of up to $250 instead of facing jail time. 

    Please ask your representatives and senators to support HB 272 and SB 251!

  • Maryland: Ask your lawmakers to support SB 1039 and HB 1264

     

  • West Virginia: Call your state senators and urge them to improve the medical cannabis law!

  • Please send your representatives and senators a message and urge them to support medical cannabis legislation in 2018!

    Patients who are struggling with serious medical conditions in Kentucky have already waited far too long for the legislature to pass a medical cannabis law. Fortunately, it appears that 2018 could finally be the year that Kentucky moves forward on the issue. Please send your representatives and senators a message and urge them to support medical cannabis legislation in 2018!

  • Vermont: Follow up with your representatives!

    On January 4, 2018, 81 representatives voted to pass H. 511 — a bill to legalize possession and limited cultivation of marijuana for adults 21 and older. They deserve our thanks. Unfortunately, 63 representatives voted against the bill. The full roll call vote is here.

    Please send a message to your representatives to thank them or express disappointment, depending on their vote. The correct message (based on their vote) will automatically load after you type in your address. Regardless of whether they voted yes on H. 511, please encourage them to support the next step: regulating and taxing marijuana!

  • Ask your representatives to let the people of Maryland decide whether to tax and regulate marijuana

     

  • Ask your lawmakers to reduce the penalties for marijuana possession!

    The Iowa Legislature is back in session, and there is renewed hope for common-sense marijuana policy reform. Last week, a Senate subcommittee recommended passage of SF 432, a bill that would reduce the penalties for marijuana possession. The bill would change the penalty for first offense possession of marijuana under five grams from a serious misdemeanor to a simple misdemeanor.

    Ask your lawmakers to reduce the penalties for marijuana possession!

  • MA: Contact your legislators and urge them to sign on to House Docket 4492!
  • Ask your lawmakers to support sensible marijuana policies!

    Rep. Mark Cardenas has introduced HB 2014, which would reduce the penalty for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana to $100. Please urge your state legislators to support HB 2014!

    Imprisoning individuals for possessing small amounts of a substance that is safer than alcohol wastes valuable resources and can lead to a lifetime of harsh consequences, including denial of student financial aid, housing, employment, and professional licenses. 

  • W.Va.: It’s time to fix the medical cannabis law!

    West Virginia’s 2018 legislative session is underway, and several bills have already been introduced to make the medical cannabis program more workable and accessible for patients.

    The two most important bills that have been introduced so far are HB 4147 and HB 4149. HB 4147 would require the state to begin issuing ID cards to qualified patients and caregivers in July of this year instead of waiting until July 2019. HB 4149 would allow patients to purchase cannabis flowers from dispensaries, rather than limiting patients to more expensive extracts.

    Please email your state legislators today and tell them patients can’t afford to wait another year and a half, and that they need access to whole plant cannabis!

     

  • Ask your lawmakers to stand with seriously ill Mississippians!

    Mississippi patients deserve the same access to treatment options as patients living in the 30 states that have already enacted medical marijuana laws.

  • Tell lawmakers to end the unnecessary and harmful policy of criminalizing marijuana consumers

    It's time for Pennsylvania to decriminalize marijuana, email your representatives today!

  • Tell your legislators to support medical marijuana in Tennessee!

     

  • Tell your senator to give Nebraskans the chance to vote on medical marijuana!
  • Tell state lawmakers it’s time to reform marijuana laws!

    The Kentucky Legislature began its 2018 session last week, and marijuana policy reforms are already among the top issues being discussed in Frankfort. A medical cannabis bill, HB 166, has already been introduced in the House, and a similar bill is expected to be introduced soon in the Senate. But that’s not all. Sen. Dan Seum, chairman of the Republican Senate Caucus, held a press conference yesterday to announce that he is introducing a bill, SB 80, that would legalize, regulate, and tax cannabis for adults 21 and older. Please send your representatives and senators a message and urge them to support reforming marijuana laws in 2018!

  • Ask your lawmakers to support taxing and regulating marijuana for adults.

    Sen. Nicholas Scutari and Asm. Reed Gusciora, who have been leaders on the issue of marijuana legalization, have reintroduced SB 830 / AB 1348, which would tax and regulate marijuana for adults 21 and over. Please contact your lawmakers and ask them to support this sensible policy that would help keep people out of the criminal justice system, improve public safety, and raise millions in tax revenue.


  • Ask your lawmaker to introduce a medical marijuana bill

    Idaho lawmakers began their 2018 legislative session last week, but so far there are no marijuana policy reform bills on the agenda. Idaho is one of only two states in the entire U.S. that does not even have a limited low-THC medical cannabis law. Seriously ill Idahoans deserve better. Please ask your representatives to show compassion and introduce a medical marijuana bill in 2018.

  • Ask your lawmaker to support the Kansas Safe Access Act

    Kansas lawmakers began their 2018 legislative session last week with several marijuana bills before them, including SB 187 / HB 2348, the Kansas Safe Access Act. This bill would create an effective medical marijuana program in Kansas. Please ask your representatives to show compassion and allow patients access to treatments that can help alleviate the suffering associated with serious conditions like cancer, multiple sclerosis, and epilepsy.

    The Virginia General Assembly convened last week, and marijuana law reform is on the docket! After a disappointing conclusion to last year’s session, the General Assembly appears ready to tackle decriminalization of marijuana.

    Contact your Senator today and tell him or her to support decriminalization of marijuana!

  • Thank Governor Cuomo for studying marijuana legalization!

    Gov. Cuomo, in announcing his budget proposal, included a call for a study of the impact on New York of legalizing the adult use of marijuana. Please thank the governor — and ask him to ensure that the study commission includes a diversity of views and expertise.

  • Tell Sen. Feinstein to protect Californians from Jeff Sessions’ anti-marijuana crusade!

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein has been a consistent obstacle to protecting states’ medical marijuana and legalization laws from federal interference. With Attorney General Jeff Sessions revoking the Cole Memo that protected state-legal activities from federal law enforcement, voters need her to start standing up for them. 

    Please call Sen. Feinstein’s office today at (310) 914-7300 (Southern California) or (415) 393-0707 (Northern California). Your call will be answered by a staff member or it will go to voicemail.

    Before you call, please look over the talking points and decide what points you’d like to make. If you or loved ones would be impacted by a federal crackdown, you may want to share that information. It may also be worth mentioning if you’ve voted for Sen. Feinstein in the past.

  • Tell Congress to stop Jeff Sessions

    It's time for Congress to pass legislation that establishes marijuana policy as a states' rights issue. If a state decides to legalize, regulate, and tax marijuana, there should be no interference from the federal government.

    In 2012, voters began approving marijuana legalization ballot initiatives in a number of states. Since then, the policy of the federal government (known as the "Cole Memo") had been to take a hands-off approach, with the Department of Justice encouraging prosecutors to not enforce federal prohibition laws if individuals or businesses were complying with state law. 

    On January 4, 2018, that all changed. Attorney General Sessions rescinded the Department of Justice​'s​ hands-off policy, ​paving the way for prosecution of legal marijuana businesses. These businesses employ thousands of Americans and generate hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenue.

    Please contact your Senators and Representative today and tell them to pass legislation that allows states to make their own decisions on marijuana policy.

  • Ask President Trump to stand by his campaign promise

  • Maine: Ask your legislators to support marijuana implementation in January!

     

  • Texas: Tell Congress to help veterans and patients!
    Congress has one month to make a plan for the federal budget, and we need your help to make sure that it includes language that protects state medical marijuana programs from federal interference and allows doctors with the Dept. of Veterans Affairs to discuss medical marijuana with their patients. If it doesn’t, the Department of Justice will once again be able to arrest state-legal patients and providers, and veterans will continue to have their treatment options limited.

    Contact your lawmakers TODAY, and urge them to defend state medical marijuana programs and improve access for veterans!

    You can use the tools below to automatically contact your federal representative and Rep. John Culberson (R-Houston), who sits on the committee that will make the final determination of what goes in the budget. You can also contact Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Dallas), who prevented these amendments from being included in the House version of the budget.

    Feel free to use the text provided, or include a message of your own politely asking them to support medical marijuana.

    Since December 2014, what is now called the Rohrabacher-Blumenauer amendment has prohibited the Justice Department from spending funds to interfere with the implementation of state medical marijuana laws. This amendment must be renewed each fiscal year in order to remain in effect and has been included in a series of spending bills approved from 2016 and this year, with the most recent extension expiring on March 23, 2018.

    With Attorney General Sessions threatening to ramp up enforcement of federal marijuana prohibition, this amendment is the only thing preventing medical marijuana patients and providers who are in compliance with state law from being targeted.

    Please tell your lawmakers to urge the Appropriations Committee to respect state law and include medical marijuana protections in the FY2018 spending bill. You can contact them directly using the email form below, or you can call the Appropriations Committee office at (202) 225-2771 to let them know voters want these protections to be a priority.

  • Ask Congress to Protect State Marijuana Laws

    Throughout his presidential campaign, Donald Trump expressed support for letting states determine their own marijuana policies. However, he raised concerns when he selected Jeff Sessions, a longtime supporter of marijuana prohibition and opponent of state-level reform, to serve as attorney general.

    The Trump administration is in the process of reviewing the Justice Department’s existing enforcement policy, and it is still unclear whether they intend to respect or interfere with state laws regulating marijuana for medical and adult use.

    Use the form below to email your members of Congress and ask them to protect state marijuana laws.
