Take Action On These Federal Bills To Protect Mmj Patients.


Recommended Posts

This was sent out by Rob Kampia of the Marijuana Policy Project. The explanation of the 'Bills' is below.

 

Take a few minutes and contact your 'FEDERAL' reps.

 

 

 

Dear friend,

 

It’s not often that three bills related to medical marijuana are introduced in Congress on the same day. In fact, it has never happened in history – until today!

 

This is big news, and we are hoping you will help spread the word in Washington.

 

All three bills would benefit medical marijuana patients and their providers. The “States’ Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act,” which has been introduced in past sessions of Congress, would modify federal law so that individuals acting in compliance with state law are immune from federal prosecution.

 

The other two bills – the “Small Business Tax Equity Act of 2011” and the “Small Business Banking Improvement Act of 2011” – have never been introduced before and address critical tax and banking issues faced by medical marijuana centers and dispensaries as they attempt to serve patients, comply with statewide regulations, and pay their fair share of taxes.

 

Having lobbied Congress for years on these issues, MPP is excited to see the sponsors of these pieces of legislation sending a strong message to the rest of the nation about the need for the federal government to respect state medical marijuana laws and to treat fairly the individuals following them.

 

Now that these bills have been introduced, we need members of the House to sign on as co-sponsors. This is where you come in. We have drafted an email for you to send to your U.S. representative. With less than two minutes of your time, you can let your representative know that his or her constituents care about this issue. This really makes a difference.

 

The tides of history are turning in our favor. But with people like you speaking out, they will turn even faster.

 

Thanks for taking action!

 

Sincerely,
