Urge Your Senators to Support the National Criminal Justice Commission Act

    1. Sponsored by

      Drug Policy Alliance

We're very close to creating an independent commission to urge Congress and President Obama to reduce incarceration and improve public safety. This commission is a great opportunity to put our failing drug policies on trial.

Please contact your Senators today before Congress adjourns for the year. Tell them to pressure Senate leadership to pass the National Criminal Justice Commission Act.

We hope to force Congress and the President to consider important ideas like making marijuana legal, treating drug use as a health issue instead of a criminal justice issue, and eliminating failed drug war programs that waste taxpayer money.

Senator Jim Webb (D-VA) and others have a plan to pass the bill, but in order for the plan to work we need to show enormous support.  Please contact your Senators now and help pass this critical legislation. Together we can march this bill over the finish line. We're very close.
