Before you watch, I want to say a few things.
It doesnt matter that this video was produced and funded by the ACLU.
This video parrots what William F. Buckley said for years.
Prohibition doesnt not work. All it accomplishes is driving it underground, inflating the cost, and sucks Billions per year out of the economy. I dont have to go into tax bennifit; that is a no brainer.
Please watch with an open mind, hard as that might be for some.
“H.R. 5842: To provide for the medical use of marijuana in accordance with the laws of the various States”
This bill was introduced on 4/16/08 and is being scheduled for debate. I urge you to do as I have done; contact your local representatives and urge them to support it.
Sponsor – Rep. Barney Frank [D-MA]
As you can see this is not a partisan bill. It has the support of both the left and the right.
You can locate and write to your representatives here.
You can view H.R. 5842 here.
I beleieve it is of the utmost importance that the federal governemnt NOT interfere with the states and the will of the people in those states.
If you have questions or need help, just shoot me an email or leave a comment.
NORML is pleased to announce that Representative Ron Paul and Representative Barney Frank have introduced H.R. 5842, the “Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act”, which seeks to enact legal protections for authorized medical marijuana patients, in the House of Representatives. Now is the time to contact your House member and urge him or her to support this important legislation.
H.R. 5842 will help to ensure that medical marijuana patients in those states where medical cannabis legislation has been approved will no longer have to fear arrest or prosecution from federal law enforcement agencies. However, this proposal will only receive serious consideration if your elected officials hear an unmistakable message of support from their constituents.
Currently, twelve states — Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington — have enacted laws protecting medical marijuana patients from state prosecution. It’s time that we allowed our unique federalist system to work the way it was intended, and permit these states’ citizens and their representatives to enact laws permitting the medical use of cannabis, free from federal interference.
Please take two minutes of your time today to contact your House member and tell him or her to support this important measure. For your convenience, a prewritten letter will be sent to your representatives when you enter your zip code below.
Thank you for your support of NORML and our efforts to enact medical marijuana reform in the United States.
