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 marijuana policy reform, laws change.
- If you’re a student, choose marijuana 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.
Spread the Word
Send letters to your U.S. senators and representative, using MPP's free and easy automated system. And to take action on the state level, visit our State Policy page to choose your state, to learn about current marijuana-related legislation in your state, and to contact your state legislators.
- Get published. Write letters to the editor of your local newspaper about the need for marijuana 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 marijuana laws. Even if the subject being discussed isn't explicitly about marijuana, 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 marijuana 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.
