Here is a sample letter you could send:
Delegate Toscano and Senator Deeds,
I urge you to support Delegate Morgan’s HB 1443 that is proposed for the upcoming session. As budgets are… squeezed, instead of laying off teachers or public safety officials, the state should quit taking an interest in subsidizing the persecution of private activities which some do not agree with. The facts are that non-violent marijuana offenders are the least of the state or law enforcements worries. Marijuana consumption is widely accepted as safer than alcohol or cigarettes yet it is much more regulated. Enforcing prejudice against a non-intrusive lifestyle choice is not in the government’s interest. It criminalizes otherwise law abiding citizens and breeds distrust where otherwise none is warranted. Substances abuse is a medical problem not a criminal problem. Help Virginia get on the right track by supporting HB 1443.
