Honor U.S. Rep. Barney Frank


Dear Alternative Solutions Plus, Inc:


Today, Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), the undisputed leader of marijuana policy reform in Congress since MPP's founding in 1995, has announced his retirement. Come 2013, we will be without his courageous willingness to openly oppose irrational marijuana laws across the board.


We hope you will honor Rep. Frank's service by asking your U.S. representative to co-sponsor his boldest piece of marijuana-related legislation — the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2011 (H.R. 2306).


This bill would treat marijuana the way alcohol is treated under federal law. It would give each state complete freedom to regulate marijuana in the manner it believes is in the best interests of its citizens. If a state wants to make marijuana available only to patients, it can. And if it prefers to make marijuana legal for all adults, it can do that, too.


Rep. Frank was driven by a belief that the federal government should not be in the business of prohibiting adults from using marijuana. If you hold the same belief — and we know you do — please take two minutes to encourage your representative in Congress to co-sponsor the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2011.


Thank you for joining us in supporting this important legislation.


Steve Fox
