  1. their congress rep Harris needs to read this. Better yet the majority of voters that are pro weed need to recall him or elect the person running against him if he or she is pro-weed. Replace ALL the minority anti-weed politicians in Washington that vote against the majority of we the people wants. The Advocates are keeping notes on the up coming votes in congress on de-scheduling cannabis and lifting federal prohibition. All the NAY voters need to go next election or from re-call.
