Last week DRCNet wrote briefly about the upcoming Cheryl Miller Memorial Project's DC vigil, demonstration and lobby day, less than three weeks from now on September 22 and 23 (http://www.cheryldcmemorial.org). There is one activity on the agenda for those who can't make it to Washington, a Congressional "phone slam" in support of H.R. 2233, the States Rights to Medical Marijuana Act. Your phone calls on September 23 will coincide with a day of Capitol Hill lobbying by attendees at the Memorial Project, and will ensure those visits are taken very seriously.

We hope that DRCNet members will make an extra strong showing of participation in the phone slam, and we have a way to make it easy to do so: Visit http://stopthedrugwar.org/medicalmarijuana/ right now to send an e-mail to your US Rep., your two Senators, and the President (if you haven't done so already), and our system will also keep a record of your Congressional District. Then, on the morning of the 23rd, we will send you a reminder about the phone slam, and the text of the message you receive will include the names and office phone numbers of your Rep. and your Senators -- you won't even have to look them up or go through the Congressional Switchboard.
