Call and to Support Hinchey-Rohrabacher MMJ! I did!
    #4292105 - 06/13/05 06:01 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Call Congress TODAY!
Medical Marijuana Vote Could Happen Tuesday

Dear ______,

Thank you to everyone who has urged lawmakers to protect medical marijuana patients in the wake of the Raich Supreme Court decision. The amendment that gives Congress an opportunity to do just that is up for a vote this week - possibly as soon as Tuesday afternoon! The Hinchey-Rohrabacher amendment would protect cancer, AIDS and other patients who use marijuana for medical reasons from federal prosecution. Lawmakers need to hear that their constituents demand protection for sick people, so call your Representative as soon as possible and forward this alert to everyone you know.

What to Do: Call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121. Ask to speak to your Representative. If you're not sure who represents you, the operator can tell you. You can also look up your Representative at www.house.gov by entering your zip code at the top.

What to Say: Once the operator transfers you to your Representative's office, give the person who answers the phone the following message: "Hi, I'm a constituent. I'm calling to urge my Representative to vote for the Hinchey-Rohrabacher medical marijuana amendment to the Justice spending bill, which will be voted on this week. I would also like him (or her) to send me a letter letting me know how he (or she) voted. This issue is very important to me." If you emailed your Representative last week in support of the amendment, you should mention that. Say that your phone call is a follow-up to an email you sent. (Hinchey-Rohrabacher is pronounced Hinchee Roy Bocker.)

Then forward this alert to friends, family, etc.

Thank you for all your work to create reforms that will help patients!


Bill Piper Director of National Affairs Drug Policy Alliance

Who did you actually talk to and what did they say?


The proof is in the pudding.

I spoke to an aid to my congressman and they said they were unsure on his support to the amendment, but will call back and let me know how he votes and let him know how I feel about the amendment.
