Please call your member of Congress this afternoon to ask for a YES vote on the McClintock-Polis amendment. Our system will look up who your representative is, based on your address, and will provide the phone number. Here are a few points you can make, if you get into discussion with the staff:
- The McClintock-Polis Amendment will only apply in states that have adopted marijuana law reforms.
- Today people who are acting in compliance with their states' marijuana laws remain at risk of federal prosecution -- a large and growing number of ordinary businesspersons and citizens.
- The amendment doesn't require states to legalize marijuana, nor will it impact on any state's ability to enforce their own marijuana laws
- There is substantial support across a range of the political spectrum for allowing states to set their own marijuana policies, including legalization -- even from people who themselves don't support legalization in their own states.
