Congress: Have a Heart for Medical Cannabis! Call Script for Use When Contacting Your Representatives
Hello, my name is (your name) and I live in (city, state).
I am calling to ask that Congressman ___________ supports the Medical Marijuana States Rights Act. The Medical Marijuana States Rights Act provides for the rescheduling of marijuana and for the medical use of marijuana in accordance with the laws of the various States.
Eighteen states and the District of Columbia have enacted laws protecting medical marijuana patients from state prosecution. Yet in all of these states, patients and providers still face the risk of federal sanction — even when their actions are fully compliant with state law. Patients and their state representatives should have the authority to enact laws permitting the medical use of cannabis — free from federal interference.
I am urging Congressman ____________ to “have a heart”. Please support The Medical Marijuana States Rights Act and to stop federal interference in states that have legalized medical marijuana.
Thank you for your time.
