Fresh faces in Congress are leading the fight to remove marijuana from the Controlled Substance Act. Representative Tulsi Gabbard, a young progressive representing Hawaii’s 2nd District, has teamed up with freshman conservative Congressman Tom Garrett of Virginia’s 5th Congressional District to introduce the “Ending Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017” to eliminate federal criminal penalties for possessing and growing the plant. By removing marijuana from the list of controlled substances, this legislation provides states once and for all with the power and flexibility to establish their own marijuana policies free from federal interference.
With the potential threat of a federal crackdown looming, passage of this legislation is more crucial than ever to ensure that medical marijuana patients and others are protected from undue federal interference. Will you stand with Reps. Gabbard and Garrett in support of the rights of responsible marijuana consumers?
These Congressional Representatives are the latest to join us in our fight for rational cannabis policies. But this support doesn’t spring out of thin air. It is the result of engaged, dedicated advocacy efforts. We need to be consistently reaching out to our elected officials in large numbers to advocate for the end of marijuana prohibition.
Tulsi and Tom are doing their part, now we need to do ours.
When we stand together, we win.
