DAY TWELVE of Michigan NORML’s campaign to educate our supporters about their U.S. Congressional Representatives and their views on cannabis.

Debbie Dingell represents Michigan’s 12th Congressional District. She inherited the seat her husband held for decades. On August 5 she won the Democratic primary. On November 4 she won the general election, defeating Republican Terry Bowman. Dingell trounced her three general election opponents capturing 65% of the vote.

Michigan’s 12th congressional district includes parts of Wayne and Washtenaw Counties.

NORML has given Dingell a grade of B because she has been only warmly supportive of sensible cannabis reforms that she has had the opportunity to vote for or against. Dingell is not a leader of cannabis reforms, but she has not blocked cannabis reforms.

Rep. Dingell needs to hear from cannabis consumers in Michigan’s 12th Congressional District NOW! You can send her a respectful email from this link:

A friendly visit to her District offices also makes a big impression. Again, always stay respectful! Dingell has offices located at:

Dearborn Office
19855 West Outer Drive
Suite 103-E

Ypsilanti Office

YOUR MAIN MESSAGE TO Rep. Dingell should be:
Thank you for supporting sensible cannabis reforms. Please co-sponsor HR 1227, the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act, and the Marijuana Justice Act, to protect the 300,000 patients enrolled in Michigan’s medical marijuana program.

Please also take 5 minutes to visit the NORML Action Center and contact your U.S. representatives:
