Need patients & physicians in CA & NM


New Member
Hello everyone,

I'm looking for patients or physicians who live in the districts below of California and New Mexico who'd be interested in co-signing an op-ed regarding medical marijuana and the Hinchey amendment (I am also pasting the e-mail alert from MPP below). The representatives in these districts are staunch opponents of medical marijuana and I feel they should be called out on their votes over the years, since they essentially translate to calling for the arrest of patients by the DEA... even when these patients live in medical marijuana states.

If you don't know your district, you can find out by going here and typing your zip code into the box at the top left of the site.

Please e-mail me at sara@mpp.org privately with a phone number if you are interested!

Thank you all,

Sara Cannon

The alert I posted previously in the Activism forum:

Dear friends of MPP:

Would you please take a few minutes to write your member of Congress and ask him or her to vote in favor of the medical marijuana amendment that the U.S. House of Representatives will be voting on in the next couple of weeks?

If you're going to send only one e-mail this year to stop the federal government's war on medical marijuana patients, now is the time – and it couldn't be easier. Just click here to go to MPP's action center. You can send one of our pre-drafted letters, or you can personalize the letter.

It's crucial that you take action now, because Congress will soon be voting on an amendment that would prohibit the DEA from spending taxpayer money to target seriously ill medical marijuana patients and their caregivers in states where medical marijuana is legal.

If you agree that sick and suffering patients should not have to live in fear of armed federal agents breaking down their doors, this is your chance to do something about it. Please send your message to Congress now by clicking here .

Last week, MPP's five-year campaign to pass the medical marijuana amendment got a big boost when we distributed decks of cards – with the title, "The Deal on Medical Marijuana: 52 Reasons Why You Should Support Medical Marijuana Access" – to every House lawmaker. The cards were extremely popular and garnered positive media attention. We're hopeful that the cards – combined with your e-mails and faxes – will help us reach the 218 votes needed to pass our medical marijuana amendment on the House floor in the next couple of weeks.

This is an important chance to speak out before Congress votes on the amendment, so if you've read this far and still haven't clicked through to MPP's action center, please do so now.

Thank you,
