Colorado Medical Marijuana Threats
Stop The Feds!
As most are aware, the Federal Government is stepping in in an attempt to enforce distance parameters for medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado. MarijuanaConnections.com urges you to take action and join the thousands of medical marijuana patients, providers, and supporters in speaking out against these unjust federal laws targeting Colorado's medicinal marijuana community.
How can I help stop threats on Colorado medical marijuana?
Help prevent these unfair restrictions on the legal marijuana industry by taking a few minutes to dial your Congress member and request that they stand up for the rights of Colorado residents.
It is also extremely helpful to the preservation of Colorado medicinal cannabis that after you have called your congress member to express your opinion, you pass this message on to colleagues, friends, and family who support medicinal cannabis and the state's sovereignty to follow your lead.
Contact information for Colorado's congressional delegation and a sample script are below.
Sample Phone Script
"I am a constituent in your new district who supports medical marijuana patients. I'm calling to say that our state's medical marijuana system is working and we need to Stop Federal Interference in our state laws. The Colorado state government is doing an excellent job of safely regulating medical marijuana distribution and I ask that the US Attorney cease his actions in shutting down state-legal medical marijuana dispensaries. Please ask the representative to contact US Attorney John Walsh and tell him to cease interfering in Colorado's tightly-regulated medical marijuana program. Thank you"
(Optional) "Additionally, I would respectfully ask that Representative _______________ co-sponsor H.R. 1983 - the States Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act - which would protect our state's medical marijuana patients and providers from federal interference. Thank you!"
