What Can You Do?
Alex Hinojosa, El Paso Times
[email protected]

Mr. Hinojosa,
     I was somewhat perplexed after reading your article entitled "Man suspected of marijuana possession arrested near Austin High School." I was confused about the connection being made in the article between the location of Mr. Scott's arrest and Austin High School. My own research (see link below) indicates that Mr. Scott was found in a home 2.4 miles, or 6 minutes away, which is well beyond the 1,000" drug-free zone around Austin High School. However, it does appear that Mr. Scott was, in fact, within 1000" of a source location, but this location was the University of Texas' Brackenridge Field Laboratory and not Austin High School.
     I'm hoping you might be able to provide additional information regarding this matter that might solidify the article's representation between the high school and Mr. Scott's arrest. At a time when state legislators and Texas voters are considering two very important pieces of marijuana law reform (HB 1491 and HB 548) it is crucial that all information surrounding this issue be as accurate as possible. Thanks for your time.

Marijuana legalization advocates organize to put new measure on California ballot
http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2011/03/new-medical-marijuana-initiative-in-california.html

To the Honorable Matt Gaetz:
     I'm writing to ask that you support HJR 1407, Medical Use of Cannabis. I understand that many people have an immediate and negative reaction when any type of drug use is mentioned; however, I am hoping you find that after forty years of failed policies, a trillion dollars in expenditures, and twenty million arrests, we must be responsible and look at alternatives to our current marijuana laws. I strongly believe that Representative Clemens' bill is the first step in a rational approach towards marijuana law reform that will benefit all Floridians.
     This bill has been referred to the Judiciary Committee, so it is possible for you to have a very direct impact on the lives of tens of thousands of our fellow citizens whose lives are ruined due to laws based on fear, prejudice, and ignorance. As an activist for marijuana law reform, I'd be happy to act as a resource for you in providing any information you might need to increase your knowledge of this critical issue.

To the Honorable Dennis K. Baxley:     
     I'm writing to ask that you, as the Chair of the Criminal Justice Subcommittee, please schedule a hearing for HJR 1407, Medical Use of Cannabis. With medical marijuana already recognized in fifteen states, as well as the District of Columbia, and legislation pending in a host of others, it is time for Floridians to have an open, honest, intellectual discussion about this issue. From a humanitarian perspective, patients and doctors in Florida deserve to have access to the same treatment modalities that are already available to over one-third of this country's population.
