Tell Congress to Pass Medical Marijuana Now!!!

Discussion in 'Marijuana Legalization' started by RMJL, Sep 8, 2003.


    Since May of last year, the DEA has raided several
    legitimate medical marijuana clinics in California,
    forcing hundreds if not thousands of patients to procure
    marijuana in the black market instead. Bryan Epis, the
    courageous operator of a not-for-profit medical
    marijuana co-op, has received a 10 year federal prison
    sentence, and medical marijuana provider Ed Rosenthal
    has so far gotten off with probation and a day, but the
    Bush administration is appealing that sentence. And
    these are just two cases of many.

    On July 23, 2003, the House of Representatives rejected
    an amendment offered by Reps. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY)
    and Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) that would have prohibited
    the Dept. of Justice from spending funds to interfere
    with state medical marijuana laws. The good news is
    that the roll call, 273-152, showed 160% greater support
    for medical marijuana than on the last and only other
    medical marijuana vote in the full House five years
    before. Your letters and phone calls to Congress made a

    There are currently two pro-medical marijuana bills in
    the House, H.R. 2233, the States' Rights to Medical
    Marijuana Act, sponsored by Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA),
    and H.R. 1717, the Truth in Trials Act, sponsored by
    Rep. Sam Farr (D-CA). States' Rights would remove
    federal prohibition of medical marijuana in states that
    have enacted medical marijuana laws. Truth in Trials
    would provide an affirmative medical necessity defense
    in those states.

    tell Congress to stop its cruel persecution of medical
    marijuana patients and providers!
