"Hi, my name is ___________ and I am calling about the Attorney General
confirmation hearings. President-elect Obama said numerous times during
his campaign that DEA raids on individuals legally qualified to use
medical cannabis in their states are a waste of resources and that he
would end that policy.
72 million Americans live in the 13 states with medical cannabis laws.
Please ask Eric Holder if he will uphold Obama's promise and end DEA raids
on legal medical cannabis patients.
The hearings will be on C-Span on Thursday...let's see Mr. Holder answer a
straight forward question regarding the clear and emerging conflict
between states favoring medical access to cannabis and a federal
government that yields no quarter on cannabis prohibition--even for the
sick and dying.
