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

Today’s legislator profile comes from Michigan’s 8th U.S. Congressional District, Congressman Mike Bishop. Prior to being elected to the Unites States Congress, Bishop served in both the Michigan House and Senate. On November 4, 2014, Bishop defeated Democratic challenger Eric Schertzing for Michigan’s 8th congressional district by 60% to 40%.

The 8th Congressional District is comprised of the northern part of Oakland County and all of Livingston and Ingham Counties.

NORML has given Rep. Bishop a grade of D because he has voted against every piece of cannabis reform legislation to come before him in the United States House of Representatives.

Rep. Bishop needs to hear from cannabis consumers in Michigan’s 8th congressional district NOW! You can send him a respectful email from this link:

A friendly visit to one of his District offices also makes a big impression. Again, always stay respectful! Bishop has offices located at:

Brighton Office
711 E. Grand River Ave., Suite A
Brighton, MI 48116
Phone: 810-227-8600

YOUR MAIN MESSAGE TO Rep. Bishop should be:
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:
