MDMJ Conference Call

High friends!!!

The meeting we held in Bethesda last month was a huge success. Thanks to everyone who was able to attend. At the meeting we discussed organizing a lobby day in Annapolis. With a bit of research and a handful of phone calls, our plan is to hold several meetings, conference calls and training sessions up until January 8th 2020, when the new session begins. This gives us plenty of time to prepare, as well as to organize a letter writing campaign to send your delegates expressing why it is important to fully legalize. A spreadsheet has been generated with a list of every delegate in Maryland who did NOT co-sponsor any marijuana legalization legislation last session. Out of 141 Delegates throughout every district in the state, only 30 delegates have either sponsored or co-sponsored legalization bills. It is also very interesting to discover the handfuls of delegates who are part of the Marijuana Legalization Work Group but did not co-sponsor any cannabis legalization bills put through last session by delegates Moon and Luedtke. These are the people we plan to meet with. We must get them on board with our progressive agenda. Without co-sponsors, these bills will go nowhere and cannabis will continue to be illegal to those who need it.

Have you ever shared with your friends or family how cannabis has helped you? Well, we also need you to express your stories to the law makers that represent you. There is no wrong way to tell your story, but we will be holding training sessions so that everyone feels confident and prepared. If you’ve ever felt compelled to get more involved in your community, then now is the time! Legalization is upon us, and it is up to us to win the fight against prohibition.

Our first conference call will be held on Tuesday June 11th from 7:30PM – 8:30PM.
