Hand delivering a letter to them at the statehouse and discussing issues right there can be pretty powerful if possible. Right now we are focused on legislators in the Senate Health Committee where medical home grow bill S342 is waiting for support and a hearing. 

Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee Members Chair Vitale, Joseph F. - 732-855-7441 SenVitale@njleg.org Vice-Chair Madden, Fred H. - 856-232-6700 SenMadden@njleg.org Codey, Richard J. - 973-535-5017 SenCodey@njleg.org Durr, Edward - 856-443-7391 SenDurr@njleg.org Gopal, Vin* Schepisi, Holly T. - 201-666-0881 SenSchepisi@njleg.org Singer, Robert W.*

*Gopal and Singer already co-sponsor.

You can bring a pre-written letter to help facilitate information sharing.

Our sample letter:

["Dear Senator _________ ,  

I am a NJ registered medical marijuana patient and and I am your constituent. I do not want to meet with you or discuss anything with you or your staff. I am requesting that you talk with any senator from your side of the aisle about their co-sponsorship of S342. They should be prepared to discuss that bill's merits better than I possibly could. Then email me back telling me where you think your colleague is wrong, and how that overrides the bill's benefits that you may agree have merit, or co-sponsor S342 as well. 

I look forward to your reply, as this affects more than just me. It affects my family and everybody who cares about me.  

Thank you.  

Sincerely, ______________"]
