Help NORML Impact the US Attorney General Confirmation!

During his election campaign, President-elect Obama pledged numerous times to end DEA raids on individuals who use or provide medical cannabis in accordance with their state law. The U.S. Attorney General is the member of the cabinet who will implement Obama's criminal justice policies--including federal marijuana enforcement.

Confirmation hearings for Obama's nominee, Eric Holder, are scheduled to begin on January 15th before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT). Please help NORML make sure the next Attorney General keeps the promises made by President-elect Obama!

Call or write Senator Leahy's office at (202) 224-4242 today. Use the text provided by NORML as a guideline for your correspondence.
