TAKE ACTION NEW YORK: Last week we asked you to reach out to US Congressional candidate Martha Robertson to ask her to clarify her stance on marijuana law reform. She so far, has ignored these request, join us by posting on her Facebook wall today, telling her if she wants New Yorkers votes, she needs to tell them where she stands on this important issue.

Go here: https://www.facebook.com/MarthaforNY?ref=br_tf

Post a question inquiring: "Marijuana legalization is an issue that is supported by a majority of New York residents. If you'd like our votes in November, we need to know where you stand on this issue. If elected to Congress, would you support rational reforms to our nation's marijuana policy?"

Martha Robertson is a Tompkins County Legislator from the Town of Dryden, former candidate for NY's 23rd CD against Tom Reed.

URGENT - New Yorkers: Whether or not marijuana decriminalization in public view will be passed before legislators go on vacation next week is being decided within the next few hours. Call the Governor now at (212) 681-4579 and say something simple like "I'd like to urge the governor to pass marijuana decriminalization in public view now before legislators leave for vacation."

It just takes a minute and could stop 50,000 racially biased arrests a year. We've been hearing that these calls have been helping.

Drug Policy Alliance Action Center:

Help the Drug Policy Alliance Stop DEA administrator Michele Leonhart.
The DEA has raided five medical marijuana providers in the past few weeks. DEA acting administrator Michele Leonhart is out of control, and it's time to demand a response from President Obama. Tell the president that he needs to find a DEA administrator who respects patients' rights and local sovereignty.
