IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUEST!!!
From Drug Policy Alliance,
I want to make sure you didn’t miss the huge news in my email below. Tomorrow will go down in history as the closest we’ve come to ending federal marijuana prohibition and repairing the harms it’s causing to our communities.
The House Judiciary Committee will vote on the MORE Act – the first time ever a marijuana legalization bill has advanced this far federally. Please take action to help us make history and move the MORE Act onto the House floor.
DPA and supporters like you have spearheaded this groundbreaking bill from the beginning. This morning, our Executive Director Maria McFarland Sánchez-Moreno spoke with sponsors Rep. Jerry Nadler and Rep. Barbara Lee at a press conference about this pivotal moment.
Marijuana prohibition is harming us all, falling especially heavily on Black and Brown people. But together, we’re moving the MORE Act forward to end the federal war on marijuana and right the wrongs of prohibition.
Tune in with me and watch this crucial vote here. I’ll be in touch tomorrow and am hopeful we’ll make history!
