It’s crunch time for the legalization bill — contact your representatives and senators today!
Our coalition has made great progress on cannabis policy in Connecticut this year, but now we are up against the clock. The legislative session is scheduled to end on June 5, and it remains unclear whether there will be enough support in the legislature to pass a bill to legalize, regulate, and tax cannabis before the session concludes.
Many representatives and senators are saying they are still undecided, so it is critically important that you contact them today. Please email your state representatives and senators right now and urge them to support ending marijuana prohibition!
Three companion bills to legalize, regulate, and tax cannabis have already been approved by legislative committees, and legislators are in the process of combining those bills into one final package. The details remain a work in progress, but you can read summaries of the bills that are currently being considered.
We’re within a few votes of seeing Connecticut become the first state to legalize and regulate cannabis by legislation rather than by voter initiative, but we really need your help to get across the finish line. After you write your legislators, please “like” our coalition on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and share this message with your family and friends!
