Marijuana prohibition has failed. It’s time for a new approach, and MPP is leading the way. Since our founding in 1995, we’ve been making real progress in reforming U.S. marijuana laws by:
- lobbying for legislation and running ballot initiative campaigns to allow seriously ill patients to use medical marijuana with their doctors’ recommendations.
- lobbying for legislation and sponsoring ballot initiatives to replace marijuana prohibition with a sensible system of regulation.
- garnering widespread media coverage of the need to change marijuana policies.
- lobbying Congress to reduce the White House drug czar’s budget for his deceptive ad campaigns.
- building coalitions of supportive individuals and organizations to advocate on behalf of marijuana policy reform.
- and much more.
