Marijuana Policy Project
The Marijuana Policy Project (MPP)
and MPP Foundation envision a nation where marijuana is legally regulated similarly to alcohol, marijuana education is honest and realistic, and treatment for problem marijuana users is non-coercive and geared toward reducing harm.
Since their founding in 1995, MPP's mission has been to:
- Increase public support for non-punitive, non-coercive marijuana policies.
- Identify and activate supporters of non-punitive, non-coercive marijuana policies.
- Change state laws to reduce or eliminate penalties for the medical and non-medical use of marijuana.
- Gain influence in Congress.
Because MPP believes that the greatest harm associated with marijuana is prison, the organization focuses 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. Real change takes more than good ideas, so MPP is all about getting results — changing policies and laws.
