What you can do?
The UCCA has drafted a letter stating the need for this amendment to be allowed to the floor for a vote. We asked for any individuals, organizations and groups to endorse this letter and received almost 600 responses! The next step is to find your state representative and either print this letter (link is below) or write your own and either postal mail it or email it to your representative. You do not have to be cannabis activists or a non profit. You just need to care enough about this amendment being renewed and willing to endorse the letter. We only have until the 8th of December to do this- this amendment expires then.
