ALERT: House of Representatives Voting on MORE Act This Week!

Submitted by David Borden on (Issue #1116)

Dear reformer:

The US House of Representatives is scheduled to take an historic, first-ever vote on marijuana legalization this week! A hearing before the vote is scheduled for tomorrow morning (Wednesday), so please take action as soon as you can!

The MORE Act (Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act of 2019) will remove marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act, decriminalizing it at the federal level and allowing states to move forward with legalization. It will allow marijuana businesses access to banking services. And it will enact social justice measures to help the communities most impacted by the drug war, like expungement of past convictions and equity measures for the legal marijuana industry. Read more about the MORE Act here.

If you're a US voter, please write your member of Congress using our online action alert. When you're done, please call them too -- use the Congressional Switchboard main number, (202) 224-3121, then ask to be transferred.

This historic moment is also a really important one. I hope we can count on your support to get the MORE Act through the House of Representatives now, and then as we take it from there!


David Borden, Executive Director
Washington, DC
