Find out how your Representative voted on marijuana legislation this week.

Here's link to information concerning a prior bill to allow doctors to discuss medical marijuana with veterans - http://www.mpp.org/states/federal/tell-congress-to-end-medical.html

The Marijuana Policy Project will also be posting the results of the vote THIS WEEK on defunding federal interference in medical marijuana laws in the 20 states and DC that have enacted them.


ALERT - This vote will take place, possibly, as soon as Thursday! Please contact your Representative if you would like to indicate your support. Here's a link to find your rep - http://www.house.gov/

...The US House of Representatives will vote on an amendment that would prohibit the federal government from spending taxpayer money to interfere with state medical marijuana laws. Though similar amendments have been offered in the past, this year it is being offered by 10 sponsors -- five Republicans and five Democrats -- and several weeks ago a different medical marijuana amendment that would have allowed VA doctors to discuss it with their patients got 195 yes votes. There is a better chance than ever that this could pass, and we can certainly get closer and advance the issue -- if you take action.
