Safer Illinois was a statewide coalition of citizens and organizations that worked to replace the harmful and ineffective prohibition of marijuana with sensible regulations and taxation. In June 2019, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed into law the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act (CRTA), which legalizes and regulates cannabis for adults’ use with an unprecedented focus on equity and criminal justice reform. MPP is proud to have played a crucial role in drafting and advancing the CRTA, working hand-in-hand with the dedicated sponsors and the governor’s office.
MPP’s campaign committee, the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, led the successful effort to pass Prop 1, which legalizes and regulates marijuana for adults 21 years of age or older in Michigan. MPP played a central role in the campaign from start to finish. From coordinating the initiative drafting to overseeing the production of TV ads, MPP staffers worked alongside an excellent campaign team for two years to make Michigan the first state in the Midwest to adopt legalization.
MPP led the drafting process and played an important supporting role throughout the Utah campaign to pass Proposition 2, which establishes a medical marijuana program in the state. We congratulate the Utah Patients Coalition team on this historic win that ends the heartless policy of criminalizing patients.
Oklahoma voters made their state the 30th to legalize medical marijuana in June 2018, with nearly 57% of voters supporting the compassionate measure! Question 788 establishes a comprehensive medical marijuana program for the state. To learn more, visit MPP’s Oklahoma page.
