Drug info-ban committee members

What follows is a list of all the members of the House Judiciary Committee, with contact information and comments kindly provided by Shelli at Quick Trading.
This is one of the two House Committees which are looking at the Methamphetamine Antiproliferation Act (HR 2987), the other one being the Committee on Commerce. Specifically, the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and the Commerce Subcommittee on Health and Environment are the ones who are examining the legislation, and who are in a position to speak against it or recommend changes.

Please take a moment to contact some of the committee members by email, fax or phone. Please be especially sure to contact any that are from your state. I encourage people to contact those representatives who are favourable to civil liberties and medicinal marijuana, as they will be more likely to want to change the censorship aspects of the bill.
