Crossover is coming
The deadline for bills to pass either the NC House or NC Senate to not “die” for the next 2 years is called crossover. It happens every odd numbered year. That’s why we need to keep emailing House and Senate Leadership. The outside pressure really helps inside pressure go farther.
We’ll keep providing some suggested wording, but please say whatever you like. Just remember to keep it productive. Our insider tips are in the Advocacy Training Playlist on YouTube.
Please copy, paste, and email the following information to NC General Assembly leaders (individual email to each is best; but please at least bcc all):
Dear Senator or Representative: (insert name)
Cannabis legalization has presented an opportunity to utilize a unique revenue structure to address Covid costs. The attached article describes a program in Denver.
Please support access to medical cannabis.
Your contact info (optional)
