Dear Supporter,

In November, MPP was the driving force behind the successful Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol ballot initiative in Colorado. Now, the wave of momentum we created in that state has hit the nation's capital.

Today, historic legislation was introduced in Congress to regulate marijuana like alcohol at the federal level!

The Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act (H.R. 499), introduced by U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO), would end federal marijuana prohibition and let states decide their own marijuana policies without the threat of federal interference. It would also establish a regulatory process similar to the one for alcohol, which is exactly what Colorado is working to set up right now!

Please take a moment to ask your U.S. representative to co-sponsor this historic piece of legislation. Public support has never been greater, and your representative needs to know that his or her constituents are behind this bill!

In an interview this past December, President Obama referred to the need to reconcile the differences between state and federal marijuana laws. This bill would do just that, by taking marijuana off of the federal list of controlled substances and allowing states to determine their own policies.

It only takes two minutes to send a message, but it can make all the difference. I hope I can count on your support.
