This Wednesday join hundreds of medical marijuana patients, providers and supporters in making quick calls to your U.S. Congresspeople. Everyone should call both Colorado U.S. Senators and your specific U.S. Congressperson. Contact information is below. Help save safe access in Colorado! There will be a rally at the CDPHE Wednesday, Jan 25th beginning at noon to protest the suffering of 460 patients due to denials to the Registry. Please join us in letting the State know that its patients who, through no fault of their own, are being negatively impacted.

(Sample Phone Script)

“I am a constituent in your new district who supports medical marijuana patients. I’m calling to say that our state’s medical marijuana system is working and we need to Stop Federal Interference in our state laws. The Colorado state government is doing an excellent job of safely regulating medical marijuana distribution and I ask that the US Attorney cease his actions in shutting down state-legal medical marijuana dispensaries. Please ask the representative to contact Colorado’s US Attorney John Walsh and tell him to cease interfering in Colorado’s tightly-regulated medical marijuana law. Thank you”
(Optional:) “Additionally, I would respectfully ask that Representative _______________ co-sponsor H.R. 1983 — the States Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act — which would protect our state’s medical marijuana patients and providers from federal interference. Thank you!”

  1. Some simple facts:

    * A rather large majority of people will always feel the need to use drugs, such as heroin, opium, nicotine, amphetamines, alcohol, sugar, or caffeine.

    * Just as it was impossible to prevent alcohol from being produced and used in the U.S. in the 1920s, so too, it is equally impossible to prevent any of the aforementioned drugs from being produced and widely used by those who desire to do so.

    * Due to Prohibition (historically proven to be an utter failure at every level), the availability of most of these mood-altering drugs has become so universal and unfettered that in any city of the civilized world, any one of us would be able to procure practically any drug we wish within an hour.

    * The massive majority of people who use drugs do so recreationally – getting high at the weekend then up for work on a Monday morning.

    * A small minority of people will always experience drug use as problematic.

    * Throughout history, the prohibition of any mind-altering substance has always exploded usage rates, overcrowded jails, fueled organized crime, created rampant corruption of law-enforcement – even whole governments, while inducing an incalculable amount of suffering and death.

    * The involvement of the CIA in running Heroin from Vietnam, Southeast Asia and Afghanistan and Cocaine from Central America has been well documented by the 1989 Kerry Committee report, academic researchers Alfred McCoy and Peter Dale Scott, and the late journalist Gary Webb.

    * It’s not even possible to keep drugs out of prisons, but prohibitionists wish to waste hundreds of billions of our money in an utterly futile attempt to keep them off our streets.

    * Prohibition kills more people and ruins more lives than the prohibited drugs have ever done.

    * The United States jails a larger percentage of it’s own citizens than any other country in the world, including those run by the worst totalitarian regimes, yet it has far higher use/addiction rates than most other countries.

    * The urge to save humanity is almost always a false-face for the urge to rule it.
    – H. L. Mencken (1880-1956) American editor, essayist and philologist.

    * 2010 Reported Corporate Revenues:

    Johnson & Johnson = $61.90 billion
        Pfizer= $50.01 billion
        GlaxoSmithKline = $45.83 billion
        Novartis = $44.27
        Sanofi-Aventis = $41.99 billion
        AstraZeneca = $32.81 billion
        Merck & Co. = $27.43 billion
        Eli Lilly = $21.84 billion
        Anheuser-Busch InBev (2007) = $16.70 billion
        MillerCoors = $3.03 billion
        Pabst = $0.50 billion

    * As with torture, prohibition is a grievous crime against humanity. If you support it, or even simply tolerate it by looking the other way while others commit it, you are an accessory to a very serious moral transgression against humanity.

    * The United States re-legalized certain drug use in 1933. The drug was alcohol, and the 21st amendment re-legalized its production, distribution and sale. Both alcohol consumption and violent crime dropped immediately as a result, and very soon after, the American economy climbed out of that same prohibition engendered abyss into which it had previously been pushed.

    “You can always count on Americans to do the right thing, after they’ve tried everything else.”
    – Winston Churchill
