I have been concentrating on educational rallies to take the good news of medical cannabis to people on the streets of Charlotte this summer. Fall is here with colder temperatures on the way. Now is a great time to talk about other types of activism to push our cause along. Writing your Legislators today is easy with e-mail and the internet speeding messages to and fro. Email is fast and a very efficient mode of communication. Sending a letter by mail is considered old fashioned & slow by many today. Hand written letters are becoming a thing out of the past. Most politicians I know live in the past so hand writing them a letter is something they will notice and read. Typed out, hand signed mailed letters rank next in gaining notice. Do not discount e-mail since it is the future of communication. Everybody knows the trouble and expense of writing and mailing letters. The Representative you are writing to will often feel the hand written or a typed signed letter is more important than your e-mail because you took the time and trouble involved to get that letter there. When you write be polite and to the point. Talk about your medical need briefly and ask directly for medical cannabis to be legalized in NC.
1 hand written letter will get noticed by our representatives. A multitude of hand written letters arriving in the same week will let them know there is more than a few of us out here asking for medical cannabis for North Carolina. We could have a coordinated letter writing campaign where everyone sends their letter on the same day. Our State representatives are not in session right now but the US representatives are still available to practice on. Sign up in the comments section if you can help. We will write the letters in October .
Do not worry about your writing abilities. Just be yourself. Be sure to tell of your troubles, ask for medical cannabis in NC and be polite. Please
