Call your representatives - support the MORE Act, HR 3884
I know we have a rule to keep politics off this forum, but I'm exercising my prerogative as a board moderator to bend the rule, just this once. Because I'm pleased to announce that there is a bill in Congress to remove cannabis from Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act, and it actually has a decent chance of passing! For the first time since 1937, the federal government could roll back its war on this therapeutic plant.
It's called the MORE Act, and it also has a counterpart bill in the Senate. Right now, we need support in the House of Representatives, where it has been stuck in committee for months and it could easily die out. But we recently got the news that it could come up for a vote in the House this month, so please call your congressional representative's office and demand that they support HR 3884, the MORE Act to decriminalize cannabis. Remind them that recent polls show 66% support for decriminalization among Americans, and that now even a plurality of Republicans support the move too. It's a common sense bipartisan reform which has overwhelming support, and the time is now!
OK, ban on political commentary back in place! :P
