Hey folks! Sorry my posts have been infrequent lately, I’ve been busier than usual. I just wanted to tell you all about another online opportunity for some political leverage on the marijuana issue. As I’m sure you all know, many elected officials are looking to the internet as a way to measure the general attitudes of their constituents. There are many, and of course some are more influential than others, but I saw a new app on Facebook that has me interested. It’s called Visible Vote, and it’s based over at VisibleVote.us. Visible Vote allows members to promote certain bills, vote yes or no on them, and rate them in importance on a four-star scale. If you have time today, add Visible Vote to your apps, click ‘Vote Now’ and look under the ‘promote a new bill’ tab. On the list of bills, please select the following three to promote:
1. H.R. 2943: Personal Use of Marijuana by Responsible Adults Act of 2009
2. H.R. 2835: Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act
3. H.R. 1866: Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2009
These three bills need all the support they can get, and this is just one more platform to raise our voices on the issue. Thanks for your time and keep fighting for re-legalization!
