Tell your reps to cosponsor the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act

When Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced plans to take the federal government back in time to the reefer madness era, to prosecute marijuana users, dispensaries, and growers in states where it’s been legalized, Justin Amash tweeted about how we could go forward, instead…

Under our Constitution, marijuana shouldn’t be federally criminalized. @RepTomGarrett has a bill that will stop AG Sessions in his tracks: the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017 (#HR1227), which I’ve cosponsored.

Here’s a list of cosponsors: https://t.co/buRPtGh9Bm

— Justin Amash (@justinamash) January 5, 2018

HR 1227 removes marijuana from the Controlled Substances Schedule 1 (effectively legalizing it at the federal level) while prohibiting marijuana importation into states where it remains illegal. If you agree with the letter we’ve written to Congress below, please send it, or revise it to suit your needs. – By Perry Willis & Jim Babka, Friday 1/19/18

Cosponsor HR 1227
I want you to cosponsor the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act.

HR 1227 removes marijuana from the Controlled Substances Schedule 1, thereby honoring the 9th Amendment by effectively legalizing marijuana at the federal level. It also prohibits marijuana importation into states where it remains illegal, thereby honoring federalism and the 10th Amendment. You swore an oath to the Constitution. Please understand your constitutional duty on this issue... The 9th Amendment protects a presumption of liberty for the American people. Each individual should be free to do as he or she chooses provided that the chosen action does not aggress against others. Federal marijuana laws violate the 9th Amendment and must be repealed. The 10th Amendment restricts federal powers to only those enumerated in the Constitution. There is no enumerated power to control marijuana consumption, or the use of any other substance. Federal marijuana prohibition is a constitutional defect that HR 1227 will largely correct.
