This morning I received my ‘Daily Tom Angell Report’ via e-mail. For those that aren’t in the know, legendary activist Tom Angell launched a new daily e-mail which is PACKED with outstanding marijuana information. He hasn’t came up with an official name for the daily e-mail, and is right now calling it the ‘Generic Marijuana Newsletter.’ I will likely continue to refer to it as the ‘Daily Tom Angell Report’ but nominations to name the newsletter are being accepted. Regardless of the name, if you are serious about marijuana reform and knowledge, I strongly urge you to sign up for it.
In the Daily Tom Angell Report there was an action alert, urging subscribers to put pressure on their Representatives to join the newly formed Cannabis Caucus. Below is more information about the Cannabis Caucus, per Decode DC:
Reps. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., and Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., are creating a caucus in hopes of improving the odds to passing federal marijuana reform bills.
“There needs to be more strategy between us, those of us who are engaged in this. More of a long-term strategy,” Rohrabacher told DecodeDC . “[And] we need to have a vehicle in which people on the outside will be able to work through and sort of have a team effort from the inside and the outside.”
Rohrabacher says Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., is likely to emerge as the spokesman for the caucus, which he said will begin meeting in January.
Marijuana Majority has a great action tool which helps you send a message to your federal Representative urging them to join the Cannabis Caucus. The upcoming session in Congress is likely to see some rough waters in regards to marijuana policy, and urging Representatives to fight for sensible marijuana policy is as important now as ever. Do your part, and go to Marijuana Majority’s action tool and send a message to your Representative urging them to add their voice and efforts to the Cannabis Caucus.
