MPP is leading the effort in Washington, D.C. to pass federal medical marijuana legislation, as well as to replace marijuana prohibition with a system of sensible regulation and control.

In Your State
MPP also works for sensible marijuana policies at the state level, and our grassroots and lobbying campaigns have changed several laws. MPP provided the bulk of the funding, staff, and expertise to the 2012 Colorado initiative to legalize and regulate marijuana for adults 21 and older. Along with our allies, we aim to pass at least 10 more laws to regulate marijuana like alcohol by 2017. Legislatively, MPP and our allies will focus on Hawaii
, New Hampshire
, Rhode Island
, and Vermont
. On the voter initiatives front, we plan to provide substantial funding and support for ballot questions in Alaska
(probably 2016), and Nevada
(2016). MPP is also lobbying for medical marijuana-related bills in state legislatures in Minnesota
and West Virginia
and building support for decriminalization in Illinois
In addition, MPP monitors and analyzes all marijuana-related bills in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
