Congressman Earl Blumenauer has a ‘take action’ effort going on. Earl Blumenauer sent a letter to President Obama with the below language. You can add your name at this link here:
It is time, Mr. President, for you to take the next logical step, cementing your legacy in history on drug reform and a fairer criminal justice system. Call for an end to marijuana prohibition and de-schedule marijuana. The House and Senate are reluctant to take bold action to legalize marijuana at the federal level, but you don’t have to wait. Under your leadership by de-scheduling marijuana, you will trigger monumental reform, allowing states to continue their pioneering efforts and putting pressure on Congress to take additional actions to tax and regulate. We can start by ending the lunacy of forcing legal marijuana companies to operate as cash-only. Seldom has such a small step, supported by a majority of Americans, had such potential transformational power.
Please seize the moment. We can’t wait.
The time is now. The country is ready.
In 2008, I joined with tens of thousands of Oregonians who cheered you on chanting, “Yes, we can!”
Today, I speak on behalf of millions of Americans across the country and ask you to support ending the prohibition of marijuana.
We hope you will respond, “Yes, I will.”
