Tell your Rep: Vote YES on Hinchey
You can learn more about the amendment at Americans for Safe Access. The amendment forbids the Department of Justice (read: the DEA) from spending taxpayer money to interfere with the state programs in the eleven states (CA, OR, WA, AK, HI, MT, NV, CO, VT, ME, & RI) that allow medical use of marijuana.
In other words, no more jack-booted federal thugs breaking down the doors of medical marijuana dispensaries and handcuffing wheelchair-bound and elderly patients who legally use marijuana to treat cancer, AIDS, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, and other maladies.
218 YES votes are needed for passage. We gained 13 votes last year, bringing the total to 161. Please call your representative and help us get the next 57 votes we need to enforce states’ rights and end the federal harassment of seriously ill people.
