Take Action Now!


As you are probably aware by now, today, June 4, is a national day of
action for medical marijuana. NORML has teamed up with the Marijuana
Policy Project, the Drug Policy Alliance and others to coordinate actions
at over 110 Congressional district offices around the country. These
actions will focus on educating members of Congress who voted against the
Hinchey/Rohrabacher Amendment last year, which would have prevented the
DEA and Justice Department from interfering in states with medical
marijuana laws.

NORML expects that this amendment will come up for a vote again this year,
hopefully by the end of this month. While last year's amendment failed by
a vote of 273 - 152, we are confident that this year we can convince many
members to change their vote this time around, but we need your help!

Since most NORML supporters cannot attend one of these local actions, we
are asking all of you to please call your members of Congress today and
voice your support for the Hinchey/Rohrabacher Amendment. To be connected
to your Representative's office, simply call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard
at 202-224-3121.

Please tell your member of Congress that it is vital that they support the
Hinchey/Rohrabacher Amendment when it comes up for a vote later this
month. Be sure to stress that this vote would not legalize medical
marijuana, but it would simply prevent the federal government from
interfering in states that already have medical marijuana laws on the

If you do not have time to call, please take two minutes to write your
member of Congress and urge their support of the Hinchey/Rohrabacher
Amendment by visiting:

Thank you for your support on this important issue. With your help we can
be certain that medical marijuana patients in the nine medical marijuana
states no longer have to fear arrest or prosecution at the hands of the
federal government.
