	NCSL to Consider Dangerous Pro-Marijuana Resolution!
	====================================================

	More Info Visit this page:

The Law and Criminal Justice Committee of the National Conference of State
Legislatures (NCSL) is scheduled to consider a dangerous
pro-marijuana resolution next week, August 19-22.

The resolution would support and encourage prohibiting the federal
government from enforcing federal marijuana laws in states that
authorize the use, distribution, possession, or cultivation of
"medical" marijuana.  If adopted, this resolution would set
a dangerous precedent for legalizing marijuana.

We urge you to contact the members of the committee and let them know
federal law must be enforced, and ask them to reject the resolution. It's
vitally important that they hear from concerned citizens on this issue. 
Below you will find the committee contacts as well as a sample letter you
can email to them.

Contact information for the committee members:

Co-Chair: Assembly member William C. Horne, Nevada - 

Co-Chair: Representative Eric Watson, Tennessee -


Vice Chair: Senator Michael L. Fair, South Carolina -

Sample letter:

Dear Members of the National Conference of State Legislatures Law and
Criminal Justice Committee,

I am writing to respectfully request that you oppose the proposed
resolution "In Support of States Determining Their Own Marijuana
Policies Without Federal Interference" at the National Conference
of State Legislatures Legislative (NCSL) Summit. This proposed
resolution, would be a rash decision that needlessly prohibits federal
enforcement and regulation of a substance that is widely abused.

Studies show that states that have legalized marijuana under the guise of
medicine have higher rates of marijuana use and related problems than
other states. Many "medical" marijuana products are
being marketed to children and young people, resulting in increased youth
emergency room visits. Marijuana is clearly being diverted to youth, and
the federal government must have the ability and means to intervene where
and when appropriate.

Disastrous results of "medical" marijuana in Colorado have
been documented such as:

Marijuana-impaired driving accidents and fatalities have increased.

Problems related to diversion to states that have not passed any
marijuana initiatives have soared.

Calls to poison centers have risen.

School incidents, involving kids showing up to class with marijuana
candies and vaporizers, have increased dramatically.

These are just a few examples of why we should not cripple the ability of
federal response.  It is for these reasons that I respectfully ask you to
strongly oppose this resolution.
