Senators Join in Unshackling Medical Marijuana
    #2040095 - 10/24/03 05:19 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)



Both U.S. senators from Massachusetts, Edward M. Kennedy and John F.
Kerry, have joined you in asking the government to approve a
groundbreaking proposal to grow marijuana for FDA-approved medical marijuana
research. Let's thank them by writing a letter or phoning their office.

Together with your faxes the senator's letter will help University of
Massachusetts Amherst (UMASS), MAPS, the Drug Policy Alliance and others
break past the government's monopoly on marijuana research. Hundreds of
you faxed the Office of National Drug Control Policy encouraging them
to recommend that the UMass license to produce marijuana for research be

Senators Kennedy and Kerry agree with you that an independent source of
supply of high-quality material is required before a realistic,
privately-funded research program on the effects of medical marijuana can be
initiated. In their Oct. 20 letter to the Drug Enforcement
Administration - which approves and declines licenses to manufacture scheduled drugs
- Senators Kennedy and Kerry criticized NIDA's "unjustified monopoly on
the production of marijuana for legitimate medical research." They
noted that "[f]ederal law makes clear that the ... bulk manufacture of
Schedule I and II substances must be provided 'under adequately competitive
conditions.' ... The current lack of such competition may well result
in the production of lower-quality research-grade marijuana, which in
turn jeopardizes important research."

Kerry is considered one of the leading contenders for the Democratic
presidential nomination.

Say thanks! Call or write the senators!!!

Contact Details for Senator Kennedy:
317 Russell Senate Office Building, Washington, DC 20510

Contact Details for Senator Kerry:

(1) Call:

You can leave a message for the senators with their front desk. Make
sure that in addition to your message your address is given so that they
can write back if they are inclined. Thank him for supporting an end to
the government's strangle hold on medial marijuana research and for
encouraging realistic, privately-funded drug development programs so that
the medicinal effects of marijuana can be appropriately investigated.

(2) Write an email/letter

Writing a letter shows a congressperson how important you find the
issue and provides written documentation of constituent feedback. Just a
few lines will do. Make sure that you include your own address. When
they receive your letter, it's very likely that they will respond to it
with a letter of their own. When they do respond, let us know what they
said by contacting us at actionfeedback@drugpolicy.org or fax it to us
at 202/216-0803, attn: Bill Piper.

Sample Letter

Addressing the letter:

The Honorable (full name)

Dear Senator _______________,
I would like to thank you for supporting an end to the government's
strangle hold on medial marijuana research and for encouraging realistic,
privately-funded drug development programs so that the medicinal
effects of marijuana can be appropriately investigated.
The U.S. should treat marijuana like any other drug and allow for
unbiased research into its effects. Otherwise, the government will continue
its shamefully hypocritical approach to marijuana.
Please continue to support efforts to reform marijuana laws by
sponsoring or co-sponsoring future legislation to allow open research and saner
Thank you for taking an affirmative stance.
