Tell Congress To Back Off DC’s Legal Weed

As you may have heard, Congress pulled a fast one on the residents of Washington DC who very emphatically legalized marijuana for both medical and recreational use. Under the $1.1 trillion spending agreement crafted by legislators, the referendum to legalize and regulate pot is nullified. This is not acceptable by any standard of democracy and is a clear slap in the face to the people of America. We can not wait another minute to tell “our” legislators that they are wrong. Plain and simple. Bill Piper of the Drug Policy Alliance explained:

“Undermining D.C.’s law is an attack on drug policy reform across the country. We can’t let this happen.

Please contact Speaker of the House John Boehner, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell right now. Tell them to protect the will of the voters!

This undemocratic plan to overturn the people’s vote must be stopped.

While other states have also legalized marijuana, Washington, D.C. is the only place to legalize marijuana as part of a larger effort to reduce police harassment and make the criminal justice system fairer for everyone.

Tell Democratic and Republican leadership to let D.C. set its own marijuana policies.

If Congress interferes in D.C. and gets away with it, then no place is safe.

Sincerely,

Bill Piper
Director, Office of National Affairs
Drug Policy Alliance”
