Do you want the Feds to raid medical marijuana clinics?
By James Wilson

Obama promised change. He pledged to respect states that permit medical marijuana. He's broken his commitments. Instead, he's maintained or worsened the policies of his predecessor, George W. Bush. And Congress is just as bad.

Last Thursday Congress showed that it has no compassion for the sick and dying, and no regard for the Constitution. They defeated the Rohrabacher-Hinchey amendment, which would end federal raids in states that permit medical marijuana.

Please "Thank or Spank" your Rep.

Deliver praise for a Yea, and condemnation for a Nay. 

If you do not act then Congress will assume you consent. Withdraw your consent.

Check your Rep's vote here.

You can then use your own words to "thank or spank" using our Educate the Powerful System, or you may borrow from our sample letters below. Choose the Yea or Nay letter as needed.

Sample letter for Reps who voted Yea:

Thank you for supporting the Rohrabacher-Hinchey amendment. Your vote reflects common sense, compassion, and respect for the 9th and 10th Amendments. I deplore how Congress voted, but I admire how you voted. 

Sample letter for Reps who voted Nay:

I deplore your vote against the Rohrabacher-Hinchey amendment. It shows disrespect for common sense, compassion, and the 9th and 10th Amendments, which you swore to defend. I consider this vote criminal. What else could it be? It violates the Supreme Law. You do not have my consent to mis-govern in this manner. 

Send your "thank or spank" letter using's Educate the Powerful System.
