Let’s not settle on anything less but full legalization.

Let’s not settle for less than anything but full legalization in the state of Pennsylvania. A fully legalized industry, with full employment for everybody. Medical is great and all but what about the rest of us that want to get in and be growers and processors and delivery people.

 

Have are own shops and stores and our own community! We deserve that wealth and safety also, every single one of us, I want to see an industry here in the state of Pennsylvania. What About Us?

 

 

Let’s face it the other states are besting us in this industry and here we are falling more more behind with  out-of-towners getting licenses to grow and process for medical. We need your help to us start 2018 off right, with a small monthly donation. It’ll just be harder for us to compete if we don’t get this done now.

 

Help us to put the Pennsylvania legislature on notice, we want full legalization. We want tax revenue for our schools ,our children. Less tax money leaving our paychecks. The list of positives just goes on and on but our legislators just don’t want to hear it.

 

Many many times I’m asked what can I do ? We need you to register to vote and contact your state representative and tell him what you want, it’s your right just be polite. The most important thing you can do in this fight is talk to your representative, for or against, talk to your representative.  Be that dude and help us out.

 

Want to know more come see us Wednesday December 20th general meeting.

Now What?

Friend,

Despite vocal opposition, members of the United States Senate voted 52 to 47 on Wednesday evening to approve the nomination of Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions for US Attorney General. 

NORML thanks the tens of thousands of you who responded to our action alerts opposing this nomination and the thousands more who took time to make phone calls. While we are disappointed with this outcome, we are pleased that several members of Congress cited the senator’s opposition to marijuana policy reform as an impetus for rejecting his appointment.

We’ve previously told you why Jeff Sessions is the wrong man for the job, but today it is time to move forward, not backward.

So now what? 

During his testimony before members of the Senate Judiciary Committee in January, Sen. Sessions said that it is not the responsibility of the Attorney General to pick and choose which federal laws to enforce. “One obvious concern is the United States Congress has made the possession in every state and distribution an illegal act,” he said. “If that’s something that’s not desired any longer Congress should pass a law to change the rule. It is not the Attorney General’s job to decide what laws to enforce.”

He’s right. It is time we demand Congress to change the rules once and for all. 

Just hours prior to Sessions’ confirmation vote, US Representative Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), along with six other Republicans and six Democrats, introduced bipartisan legislation, ‘The Respect State Marijuana Laws Act,’ to prevent the federal government from criminally prosecuting individuals and/or businesses who are engaging in state-sanctioned activities specific to the possession, use, production, and distribution of marijuana.

HR 975 states, ‘‘Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the provisions of this subchapter related to marihuana shall not apply to any person acting in compliance with State laws relating to the production, possession, distribution, dispensation, administration, or delivery of marihuana.’’

Passage of this Act would halt US Attorney General Jeff Sessions or any other federal official from prosecuting individuals and businesses for violating the Controlled Substances Act in the 29 states that permit either the medical or adult use and distribution of marijuana. According to national polling, 60 percent of Americans support legalizing marijuana.

Click here to send your member of Congress a message urging them to support HR 975. 

With the appointment of Sen. Sessions to the position of US Attorney General, passage of this Act is necessary to ensure that medical marijuana patients and others are protected from undue federal interference. 

Please take action today to urge your federal lawmakers to support HR 975, the ‘The Respect State Marijuana Laws Act,’ and when you have finished, please also take a moment to make a generous and much appreciated donation to NORML here so that we can continue to make progress in our federal and statewide efforts.

With NORML members throughout the country organizing lobby days and taking action over the coming days and weeks, the fight for cannabis freedom will continue with renewed energy.

NORML has resisted marijuana prohibition for 47 years – We’re not going to stop now; in fact, we’re just getting started. Are you in?

Onward,

NORML Team
