MTCIA ACTION ALERT

June 20, 2014

Dear Members:

 

In my last post, I mentioned that the U.S. House of Representatives passed an amendment defunding the DEA’s raids on medical marijuana establishments in states where it is legal under state law. That provision could be voted on in the Senate today. I am urging all members and their friends and family members to call Senators Tester and Walsh and ask them to support SA 3289. Also, please ask them to support SA3285. This amendment was introduced by Senator Walsh and prevents medical marijuana patients from sacrificing their gun-ownership rights simply because they medicate with cannabis. Collectively, these two Senate amendments, if passed, will send a strong message to the DEA to leave medical marijuana alone. When I called Senator Tester’s office last week, his staff had not heard from us on this issue. WE NEED TO MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD ON THIS IMPORTANT ISSUE.

 

PLEASE CALL THESE NUMBERS TODAY AND ASK OUR SENATORS TO VOTE FOR SA3289 AND SA3285

SENATOR TESTER: 202-224-2644

SENATOR WALSH: 202-224-2651

 

Yours in Solidarity,

 

Mort Reid

President, MTCIA
