As part of our ongoing Peace for Patients campaign, ASA is fighting hard to end the federal war on medical cannabis patients ... but we can't do it without your help! This summer, Congress has the power to cut the Department of Justice's (DOJ) budget on all medical cannabis enforcement, essentially calling a temporary ceasefire in the war on medical cannabis.
Throughout the month of August while Congress is on summer recess, organizers across the country will be meeting with their electeds in their home districts to lobby for a cut to the DOJ's budget. To make the biggest impact, ASA needs your help informing Congress that Obama is wasting over $100,000 a day by dropping off a 100 Grand postcard and candy bar to your Senators' and Representatives' offices.
ASA's staff has made it super easy to participate in this action by creating a Campaign Toolkit so that you have all the resources you need to be successful. Incldued in the toolkit:
- 100 Grand Postcard (see image above) to drop off
- Policy Agenda to leave with congressional staff
- Easy Talking Points for you to use when meeting with staff
Everything in the toolkit is downloadable, but you can also request printed copies be mailed to you at firstname.lastname@example.org
Steph will also be holding a conference call next week to give some updates on the Peace for Patients campaign. Join us on Thursday, August 8th to learn all about the 100 Grand action and why it's important for you to participate!
