You Can Make a Difference
Email the DC Council 
What if you woke up one morning and suddenly your daily cup of coffee was illegal?
It probably sounds like a joke, but don't be too sure.
Even as the rest of the country is beginning to rethink its drug policies, DC is considering a bill that would take the drug war to an even more ridiculous extreme.
Right now, the DC council is considering pouring countless hours and your tax-payer dollars into banning a substance that has effects similar to a cup of coffee.
For thousands of years, East African communities have carried on the custom of chewing or making tea with a plant called khat. There is no good reason for the Council to single out this one community by banning a harmless plant that comes from their home country.
This ban is a mistake, but today you can do something to stop it: Write to the DC Council today and urge them to stop the prohibition of khat .
This ban is up for a discussion on June 30, so your letter now could make all the difference.
In just a few minutes, you can help defend our local communities from needless harassment and discrimination. Thank you for joining us in this fight!
