I got a letter from the US Senate
    #3714592 - 02/01/05 07:24 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

So awhile ago I wrote to the Senate expressing my support for medicinal marijuana. Surprisingly, I got a letter in return about a week ago.

Basically Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson (or her secretary...I don't know if my letter was even read) sent me a return letter saying that she appreciates the fact that I spoke up, but that she disagrees that MJ has any health benefits, and considers it a dangerous drug that needs to remain scheduled.

I intend to frame it. But I feel a little disheartened because I don't think that my letter was even read by this senator.

Anyone else get a similar letter from a senator or politician?

I recognize her name from the Daily Show last Friday I think. When the Senate was debating the nomination of Condoleeza Rice for Secretary of State, the Democrats agrued that she withheld information about Iraq or whatever, and Kay Bailey Hutchinson effectively said that it was bad to bring up past mistakes in the war against terrorism, specifically the War in Iraq and stirring this stuff up didn't do any good. So Jon Stewart effectively summarized her speech as, "Well, basically, you don't have to be responsible for any past mistakes." I couldn't help thinking, "Man, that's one dumb bitch."

I sent a letter to Bill Clinton during his first term and got the standard presidential package back in the mail. It was pretty lame. Then one time for class we were supposed to think of questions we'd like to ask Clinton if we had the opportunity and it was held as a contest by a local paper. I really didn't have anything to ask him, so to get the assignment done I asked my parents what they'd ask him. Well I turned in their questions, and I got the top place in my grade (:lol:) and I got to spend an entire day down at the newspaper office seeing how they work and everything, then I got treated to Burger King for lunch. :smile:

MJ has no Medical Benefit, HORSESHIT!

You should take that letter and send it back to who ever sent it to you except put some BABY-POWDER in the envelope and write a little note saying, "SEEK HELP, USE PENICILLIAN NOW"! That should freak them out.

Yup, I've sent several letter to politicians on our drug policy...I got many replies, but none coming out and saying they support what I wrote. Rick Santorums letters back only gave detailed descriptions of the legislature I was against....like I didn't already know what it was.  :rolleyes: Ah, at least he responded.....that guy is conservative nothing will open his eyes..... :shrug:
