Lobbying members of Congress is something that we should all be doing, both in our home districts, as well as in Washington D.C. if we can make it there. The always hardworking people at Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) are trying to get as many of their members and alumni to Washington D.C. this June to do just that. Please consider making a donation to SSDP so that they can help as many college students make it to Federal Marijuana Lobby Day in Washington D.C. as possible. More information about Federal Marijuana Lobby Day is below:
Our movement faces a critically limited window of time between now and this summer, when the U.S. House of Representatives may vote on an amendment that would seek to curtail DEA enforcement activities in states with legal marijuana markets. Join SSDP for a day of lobbying training, then head to Capitol Hill to make your voice heard.
