Call or e-mail your Reps. and ask them to support LRB-2457 to legalize the cannabis plant. If you
wish, tell them youll keep an eye on whether or not they vote for it and will consider them in the next
election if they support it. The bill will generate wealth for the state, decrease gang and crime activity,
create education programs in schools, and prohibit the sale to minors under the age of 21. Marijuana is a
much safer drug than alcohol that you can not overdose on. Below are some other facts about the plant.
