A few things to keep in mind when contacting your state representative:
- Keep it clear and focused - don't let your message get lost
- Be respectful of time - everyone is busy, getting to the point helps a lot
A template email:
I am a voter in your district. I am writing today to ask you to request clarity from the Department of Food and Agriculture about why they removed the acreage cap from the recently adopted cannabis cultivation regulations. As recently reported in the Sacramento Bee on January 24th, "the department’s reasoning behind the decision never has been been fully explained."
Thank you in advance for asking these important questions.
