Later this week, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment, and Expungement (MORE) Act, H.R. 3884. This will mark the first time that Congress vote on the legal status of marijuana since the passage of the Controlled Substances Act a half-century ago.
If you’re reading this email, you have probably already taken action to get your representatives to sign on to the MORE Act. It’s because of the efforts of activists like you that Congress is finally beginning to catch up to the American public in recognizing that marijuana prohibition is a harmful policy that needs to end. But we need one MORE push to win when the bill comes up for a vote later this week. Please take action to urge your Representative to vote yes on MORE!
While the bill is unlikely to move in the Senate this session, passage of MORE in the House this year will signal that marijuana reform will be a priority issue in Congress next year.
The MORE Act vote could be as early as Wednesday evening. Don’t delay, contact your member of Congress today!
