Thanks to all who attended the 2015 NORML Legislative Fly-In for this important opportunity to make sure our elected officials begin to roll-back federal prohibition and allow the states to continue forward with different models of marijuana legalization. Presentations from Wednesday's training session are available online courtesy of The Russ Belville Show.
You can also make your voice heard by virtual lobbying. We've organized a social media campaign that will assist us with our lobbying efforts. Having a strong and active presence on social media will add an additional layer to our overall strategy.
There are many federal marijuana-friendly proposals pending, from legalizing marijuana for all adults to legalizing the medical use of marijuana under federal law, to treating state-legal marijuana businesses the same as other legal businesses for IRS and other purposes, and proposals to reclassify marijuana under federal law and to decriminalize responsible marijuana smokers.
Help move these bills forward by visiting NORML's 'Take Action Center' to let your elected officials know you oppose marijuana prohibition and support these proposals. Tell them that federal marijuana law reform efforts are supported by millions of hardworking, mainstream Americans -- not just those who smoke marijuana.
The documents listed here can provide you with important talking points when you write, call or visit your Representatives and Senators. Please feel free to edit our pre-written letters to add your own perspective on changing America's marijuana laws.
