CALL and EMAIL SCRIPT:

My name is ______. I’m calling to ask for your support in ending prohibition and fully legalizing Cannabis in Minnesota in 2019 because thousands of lives are at stake. We must stop criminalizing Minnesotans over a healing plant that makes people feel better and doesn’t kill anyone. Prohibition is the problem, not Cannabis. Thousands of lives are at stake because of prohibition, not Cannabis. You don’t have to be pro-Cannabis to be opposed to its failed prohibition. Full legalization is the only solution!

Please contact me to discuss how we can make it happen, Senator ______.

My number is ______, and my email address is ___________________.

I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for your support!

NOTES:

  • Leave your number and follow up with an email. These are confidential communications, so don’t worry, but if you are afraid to leave your name and contact information, let them know that is why you’re communicating with them anonymously. This actually emphasizes the oppressive nature of prohibition because people have to live in fear over being criminalized over a healing plant. WtF?!
  • If you have the opportunity to speak with them, please share your personal story to clarify why this is important enough for you to make the call or write to them.
  • Feel free to use the same sample script for calls and emails, but consider including your personal story and that of someone you know or love. Talking points are good, but stories are much more compelling!

THANK YOU:

Thank you for making the calls and emails and sending a written testimony!
If you can make it, please show up at the hearing!!!
