Urge WA Lawmakers to Stand Up for Our Marijuana Laws
Initiative 502 passed last year with a resounding 55.7 percent approval. Now that marijuana possession is legal for adults in our state, Washington needs our elected officials in Washington, DC to take action to reflect the voice of the people. They need to support the Respect State Marijuana Laws Act (HR 1523), legislation that would protect medical and non-medical users and businesses in compliance with state law from federal prosecution. These protections are very important for our marijuana regulation system to run safely.
So far, just one Washington lawmaker, Rep. Adam Smith, has signed on in support of HR 1523. We need your help in recruiting more of our lawmakers to support it. Let them know you want DC to respect the decision made loud and clear by the voters of Washington state.
While you’re at it, please take a moment to thank Rep. Smith for his dedication to the will of the voters.
