Tell Sen. Feinstein to protect Californians from Jeff Sessions’ anti-marijuana crusade!
Sen. Dianne Feinstein has been a consistent obstacle to protecting states’ medical marijuana and legalization laws from federal interference. With Attorney General Jeff Sessions revoking the Cole Memo that protected state-legal activities from federal law enforcement, voters need her to start standing up for them.
Please call Sen. Feinstein’s office today at (310) 914-7300 (Southern California) or (415) 393-0707 (Northern California). Your call will be answered by a staff member or it will go to voicemail.
Before you call, please look over the talking points and decide what points you’d like to make. If you or loved ones would be impacted by a federal crackdown, you may want to share that information. It may also be worth mentioning if you’ve voted for Sen. Feinstein in the past.
Please be polite, concise, and respectful (most staff members are probably on our side anyway), and always remember, we are trying to persuade decision makers, not alienate them. Thanks for taking the time to take action!
• I have been extremely disappointed with Sen. Feinstein’s track record of opposing progress on marijuana policy, including her 2015 vote to allow the federal government to continue raiding medical marijuana patients and providers.
• Whatever the senator’s personal views on marijuana are, it’s time she stand up for the will of California voters, both regarding medical marijuana and adult-use legalization.
• The federal government cannot stop states from legalizing marijuana, so any federal interference will simply drive sales to the criminal underground and reduce access to banking. Federal intervention doesn’t stop legalization, it just undermines regulations and puts people in danger.
• Can I count on Sen. Feinstein to start supporting Congressional efforts to prevent federal raids and prosecutions of Californians who are complying with our states’ marijuana laws? (Specifically, will she call for a Judiciary Committee hearing on the issue and cosponsor legislation to remove federal penalties for state-legal marijuana activities?)
