Members of Congress are still on track to vote on the MORE Act later this month — a federal bill that would remove cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act and eliminate criminal penalties under federal law. If enacted, the MORE Act would essentially end the war on cannabis at the federal level.

This is big, and you can help. Follow this link to send a message to your representative in the House, who should hear from you on this.

In addition to decriminalizing cannabis, MORE does other important things: it would expunge criminal histories related to marijuana and prohibit discrimination against individuals on the basis of their cannabis use, to name just a couple. A closer look at MORE is available here.

This is an important time when lawmakers need to hear from voters in their districts to help press the issue — and that’s you. Please take action now. And then, please forward this message to people in your circle and help get the word out.

Thank you!
