Raise your voice. Sign up for MPP’s email alerts. You’ll receive breaking news updates and opportunities to use MPP's online system to email or call your legislators on important legislation. When legislators receive thousands of messages from MPP members and allies in support of cannabis policy reform, laws change.
If you’re a student, choose cannabis policy issues for your research projects or papers. Students in your class will be exposed to the issue, and professors sometimes even use student ideas for their own research projects.
Get published. Write letters to the editor of your local newspaper about the need for cannabis policy reform. Feel free to use any of the information in MPP’s email alerts and on our website in your letters.
Distribute MPP literature in your community. Many of our pages offer printer-friendly handouts and brochures that you can download.
If you're a talk radio listener, call in and express support for reforming cannabis laws. Even if the subject being discussed isn't explicitly about cannabis, many related issues can be a springboard for urging reform. For example, if the issue is crime, you can point out that law enforcement resources are better spent going after violent criminals than on arresting adults who use cannabis responsibly.
Arrange meetings with your state legislators and congressional representatives. Personal face-to-face visits to these offices can have considerable influence on elected officials.
If you are a medical professional, lawyer, elected official, medical cannabis patient (or have a loved one who is), or member of the clergy or law enforcement, contact MPP about special ways you can help.
Work to get your city council to pass an ordinance making cannabis offenses the city’s lowest law enforcement priority.
If you are a clergy member, health professional, law enforcement officer, or community leader, sign our statement of principle. Download our statement of principle in support of regulating cannabis, print it out, and email or postal mail it to us at MPP, P.O. Box 21824, Washington, D.C. 20009, or at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also ask community leaders you know to sign the statement and then send it on to us.
