Lawmakers today in the House of Representatives debated the MORE Act, which is now expected to get a vote by the entire House of Representatives tomorrow. For the first time, Congress will vote on a measure to end the federal war on cannabis.
It’s a big deal. And it is a chance for you to have a direct say in the law-making process. If you haven’t already, now is the time to send a message to your lawmaker to ask for support for the MORE Act. We’ve made it easy to do — just follow this link which routes your message to your own member in the House.
MORE would completely remove cannabis from the list of controlled substances and strike criminal possession laws at the federal level. That alone is huge, but it would also have the effect of getting better access for veterans and letting cannabis businesses use banks — just to name a few. MORE would also expunge the criminal cannabis records for those caught in the gears of the federal criminal justice system. You can read more about other key provisions in MORE here.
Please take a moment to reach out to your member in the House so they hear from you before they vote tomorrow. Here we go, folks!
