    North Carolina Rep. Thinks Public Engagement Is Harassment

    As you might have read or heard, a state representative in North Carolina killed a medical marijuana bill yesterday because he felt he and his colleagues were being “harassed” based on the volume of emails and calls they were receiving in support of the legislation.

    This is unacceptable. Our democratic process depends on citizens reaching out to their elected representatives to let them know where their constituents stand on the issues. Not only is this type of civic engagement appropriate, it should be encouraged. If anything, such a high volume of calls and emails in support of the medical marijuana bill should be considered a sign that this is an issue worthy of public debate.

    Please send a message to Rep. Paul “Skip” Stam asking him to apologize for Paul 'Skip' Stamequating calls and emails from constituents to being “harassed,” and requesting that he call for a hearing regarding medical marijuana. 

    Despite what Rep. Stam said, elected officials need to hear from their constituents. This is a perfect opportunity to let him know that, so please take action today.
