Here’s a great NORML page with how to do so. Go you, go!
How did your Colorado Senator vote for SB-117?
My State Senator, Rollie Heath, who is up for reelection, voted for this bill. I have contacted him and contacted him to get his reasoning on why he would vote this way, pointed out to him that I vote and as his constituent, would like it if he voted against this bill.
No response. Why is that Senator?
I’m calling on all those in District 18 which includes all of the city of Boulder, CO, Gunbarrel, Niwot, Hygiene and unincorporated Boulder County to contact Senator Heath and politely request he vote against this bill. May I also remind those of you in Nederland, Ward, Jamestown, etc, that District 18 is being redrawn and if Rollie Heath gets reelected, he’s going to be representing you!
How can a state senator who is a big education backer be against Medical Marijuana or Marijuana at all when the money earned through taxing it will be such a win for the state. Amendment 64, which you can vote for this November 6, 2012, proposes to give the first $40 million of revenue from the taxes collect PER YEAR to the Public School Capital Construction Assistance Fund. That’s $40,000,000 per year.
Here is the bill and how Colorado State Senators voted. If you follow the link at the bottom, you will also be able to see how the House of Representatives voted as well.
