ALERT: Support New Medical Marijuana Bills in Congress
On May 25, 2011, a bipartisan group of US Representatives introduced
three new medical marijuana bills. H.R. 1983 would exempt people
complying with state medical marijuana laws from federal arrest and
prosecution. H.R. 1984 would protect banks accepting deposits made by
medical marijuana dispensaries. And H.R. 1985 would allow the
dispensaries to deduct business expenses on their federal taxes like any
other business, putting an end to dozens of industry IRS audits already
