A Federal Dan on Marijuana Rallies: Please Respond
    #752490 - 07/17/02 06:04 AM (15 years, 4 months ago)

Greetings:
Due to "our" elected official's continuing self
righteous moral indignation, once again they have
decided to protect us from ourselves.

"It could probably be shown by facts and figures that
there is no distinctly native American criminal class,
except Congress."
Mark Twain

Here is the rarely advertised WHITE HOUSE COMMENT LINE
PLEASE CALL TOLL-FREE at 1-800/663-9566 (press zero
to bypass the long recording) from 9 am - 5 pm Eastern
time.

[The following important message is being forwarded by
the Marijuana Policy Project on behalf of the Drug
Policy Alliance and DanceSafe. Please direct any
questions to bpiper@drugpolicy.org.]

================================================

PROPOSED LAW COULD SUBJECT YOU TO 20 YEARS IN PRISON
Stop the Senate From Banning Marijuana Rallies and
Other Events

Take Action at: http://ga1.org/campaign/rave

The Senate is poised to pass legislation that would
give federal
prosecutors new powers to shut down hemp festivals,
marijuana rallies
and other events and punish business owners and
activists for hosting
or promoting them. The proposed law would also
potentially subject
people to enormous federal sentences if some of their
guests smoked
marijuana at their party or barbecue. It would also
effectively make
it a federal crime to rent property to medical
marijuana patients and
their caregivers.

The bill, known as the Reducing American's
Vulnerability to Ecstasy
Act (RAVE Act), was just introduced in the Senate on
June 18th and has
already passed the Senate Judiciary Committee. It is
moving VERY
rapidly and could be passed by the Senate as early as
this week. While
it purports to be aimed at ecstasy and other club
drugs, it gives the
federal government enormous power to fine and imprison
supporters of
marijuana legalization, even if they've never smoked
marijuana.

It is urgent that you take action today!

ACTIONS TO TAKE

** Fax your Senators today. Go to
http://ga1.org/campaign/rave
to find out more.

** Forward this alert to your friends, family, and
co-workers.

** After you fax your Senators, please follow it up
with phone calls.
Tell them you just faxed them a letter in
opposition to S. 2633,
the Reducing American's Vulnerability to Ecstasy
Act. Tell them
that innocent business owners shouldn't be
punished for the crimes
of their customers. Tell them this bill has
dangerous anti-civil
liberties provisions that they need to be aware
of, and this bill
deserves serious debate.

You can contact your Senators through the Capitol
Switchboard at
202-224-3121. To find out who your Senators are go to:
http://www.senate.gov/senators/senator_by_state.cfm

MORE INFORMATION

The Senate is considering legislation that would give
federal
prosecutors new powers to shut down raves, marijuana
rallies and other
events they don't like and punish businessmen and
women for hosting or
promoting them. The bill (S. 2633), also known as the
Reducing
American's Vulnerability to Ecstasy Act (RAVE Act), is
moving very
rapidly and could be considered by the full Senate as
early as this
week. (A similar bill is also pending in the House.)

S. 2633, sponsored by Senators Durbin (D-IL), Hatch
(R-UT), Grassley
(R-IA) and Leahy (D-VT), expands the so-called "crack
house statute"
to allow the federal government to fine or imprison
businessmen and
women if customers sell or use drugs on their premises
or at their
events. Property owners, promoters, and event
coordinators could be
fined hundreds of thousands of dollars or face up to
twenty years in
federal prison if they hold raves or other events on
their property.
If the bill becomes law, property owners may be too
afraid to rent or
lease their property to groups holding hemp festivals
or putting on
all-night dance parties, effectively stifling free
speech and banning
raves and other musical events.

The new law would also make it a federal crime to
temporarily use a
place for the purpose of using any illegal drug. Thus,
anyone who used
drugs in their own home or threw an event (such as a
party or
barbecue) in which one or more of their guests used
drugs could
potentially face a $250,000 fine and years in federal
prison. The bill
also effectively makes it a federal crime to rent
property to medical
marijuana patients and their caregivers, giving the
federal government
a new weapon in its war on AIDS and cancer patients
who use marijuana
to relieve their suffering.

Health advocates worry that the bill will endanger our
nation's youth.
If enacted, licensed and law-abiding business owners
may stop hosting
raves or other events that federal authorities don't
like, out of fear
of massive fines and prison sentences. Thus, the law
would drive raves
and other musical events further underground and away
from public
health and safety regulations. It would also
discourage business
owners from enacting smart harm-reduction measures to
protect their
customers. By insinuating that selling bottled water
and offering
"cool off" rooms is proof that owners and promoters
know drug use is
occurring at their events, this bill may make business
owners too
afraid to implement such harm-reduction measures, and
the safety of
our kids will suffer.

The RAVE Act punishes businessmen and women for the
crimes of their
customers and is unprecedented in U.S. history. The
federal government
can't even keep drugs out of prisons, yet it seeks to
punish business
owners for failing to keep people from carrying drugs
onto their
premises. If this bill passes, federal authorities
will have the
ability to scare business owners away from using or
renting their
property for marijuana festivals, as well as any other
"politically
incorrect" event.

For more information on this bill, go to

under "bill number" search for S2633.
