WWW.MPP.ORG About the Marijuana Policy Project Someone is arrested for a marijuana offense every 36 seconds. 89% of these are for marijuana possession — not for sale or manufacture. In the US, there are more arrests for marijuana possession each year than for all violent crimes combined. 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 US 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 czars budget for his deceptive ad campaigns … building coalitions of supportive individuals and organizations to advocate on behalf of marijuana policy reform … and much more.
