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.
