Congress Votes No on Medical Marijuana

Our side didn't realistically expect to win today so we weren't disappointed.
We did pick up 13 votes from last year's tally though and that shows progress.

However, my Congressman Mike Rogers, was not among them even though he told me that he would not vote against it at our last lobby session.

Write Mike and tell him how you feel about being lied to. I'm sure he would love to hear from you.

You can view this Roll Call List to find out how your Congressman voted.

As for Alabama...we will move forward with our Compassionate Use Act....and we will launch a campaign against every Congressman who voted to continue locking up sick people in direct opposition to the will of the people. It is time to elect officials who hear us when we speak and act accordingly.


  • Loretta, there is some good news. We managed to get my Rep. Wu (D-OR) to change his 2003/2004 NO vote to a YEA. Read more about my personal crusade to shame Wu into changing his vote.

    Man, it feels GOOD when it seems like your lawmakers are listening to you!
