    SUBJECT: Medical marijuana votes in Congress:
    Call to praise or blame your U.S. representative!


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

    U.S. House of Representatives committee actions on medical marijuana
    continued on Tuesday, July 15, with yet another valuable roll call
    vote (see below). Now, it's time to get ready for the first floor vote
    on medical marijuana in the House in five years. Next week, U.S. Rep.
    Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) is planning to propose an amendment to the
    Commerce, Justice, State, and Judiciary Appropriations bill that would
    defund the DEA's raids on state-approved medical marijuana patients
    and providers.

    Please help the Marijuana Policy Project prepare for this vote by
    checking the roll call votes listed below to see if your U.S.
    representative has earned praise or blame recently. If he or she has,
    call today and express your support for medical marijuana. If your
    representative is not listed here, please wait for our next action
    alert, in which all subscribers will be asked to send letters to
    Congress in support of the Hinchey amendment.
