New MJ Bill In Congress

The Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) has just informed me a bill has been introduced in Congress by Rep. Barney Frank. The bill, H.R. 5843- The Personal Use of Marijuana by Responsible Adults Act of 2008- will eliminate penalties for possession and sales of small amounts of marijuana by adults.

We'll all want to contact Congressman Mike Thompson's office, encourage him to support this bill and, hopefully, sign on as a co- sponsor. The MPP has an online form available you can use to e-mail Thompson your message but I discourage that as boilerplate e-mails just aren't as effective as phone calls, faxes, regular mail, or even personally written e-mails. Of course, MPP encourages you to personalize your letter using their online form, but a personal one from the start would probably be best.

Get those phone calls, letters and faxes going, folks!
