Tell your Members of Congress to support the MORE Act
The U.S. House of Representatives passed the SAFE Banking Act which will allow marijuana businesses to access financial services. While this legislation is an incremental step towards rolling back marijuana prohibition, it fails to help communities that have historically and disproportionately carried the brunt of punitive drug laws.
The war on marijuana is a war on people. That’s why DPA has led the way in pushing Congress to put people first – and leadership is listening.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer released a statement calling for broader marijuana reform. And House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler announced he’ll hold a vote on the MORE Act, the most sweeping marijuana reform bill ever in Congress. It would de-schedule marijuana at the federal level to let states set their own policies without interference and begin to repair the extensive damage done by prohibition.
Keep up the pressure: tell your lawmakers to support the MORE Act and move marijuana justice forward in Congress.
