Someone is arrested for a marijuana offense every 48 seconds. 87% of these arrests are for marijuana possession  not for sale or manufacturing. In the U.S., 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 U.S. marijuana laws, by:

Because MPP believes that the greatest harm associated with marijuana is prison, we focus on removing criminal penalties for marijuana use, with a particular emphasis on making marijuana medically available to seriously ill people who have the approval of their doctors.

We know that real change takes more than good ideas, so MPP is all about getting results — changing policies and laws. Please learn about some of our major accomplishments.

And if you are one of the millions of Americans who agree that it’s time to stop arresting marijuana users, please consider donating to our work. We are making real progress — but we are 100% reliant on donations from people like you to push forward in our work. Still not sure? Read some of the reasons to donate here.
