Tell Obama: Let States Legalize!

Take action today and urge Obama not to interfere with marijuana legalization in Washington and Colorado.
Let the States Implement Marijuana Legalization

Dear [Decision Maker],

I'm writing to thank you for not standing in the way of voters in Colorado and Washington who passed marijuana legalization ballot initiatives. On Election Day, citizens in Colorado and Washington voted by wide margins to legalize and regulate marijuana like alcohol. The strong support these measures received shows that Coloradans and Washingtonians want a new approach to marijuana policy, and they're not alone.

A recent Gallup poll found that marijuana legalization is supported by a majority of Americans, including a majority of independent voters, a majority of people in Western states, a majority of people in Eastern states, a majority of people in the Midwest, and almost a majority of Americans in Southern states. 18 states and the District of Columbia have already made marijuana legal for medical use. 15 states have decriminalized marijuana for personal use.

Even Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy from Vermont has said that federal law needs to be updated to allow states to do what is best for their citizens without fear of federal intervention. Until that happens, only you can ensure that the federal government won't interfere with marijuana laws passed by the citizens of the states. The federal government should not interfere in states that want to try a different approach.

In Colorado and Washington, marijuana legalization will begin to bring the currently unregulated and profitable marijuana market under the rule of law, helping to curb the crime, violence and out-of-control youth access that flourish under the current system of prohibition.  I urge you respect and protect the will of voters by allowing the states to effectively implement their marijuana legalization laws.
