This summer, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on the Hinchey-Rohrabacher amendment, which, if passed, would prohibit the DEA and the Justice Department from spending taxpayer money to raid, arrest, or prosecute medical marijuana patients and providers in the 12 states where medical marijuana is legal. The amendment has been steadily gaining momentum for the last several years. Studies have shown that personalized e-mails are much more likely to influence members of Congress and their staff. We have provided a sample letter below, but please use our language as a starting point and create a personalized e-mail of your own. If you have a family member or friend who has used medical marijuana, or if you are a patient yourself, please share that information with your member of Congress. It will increase the impact of your letter.
