Why should you give to MPP?
Despite strong public support for ending marijuana prohibition, MPP faces an uphill battle. While many Americans recognize the irrationality of marijuana prohibition, not all see it as harmful, and even fewer actually do something about it.
Because of this inaction, the federal government has been free to wage a destructive, wasteful war on marijuana users — at an expense to all of us in tax dollars, privacy, and liberty.
In 2013 alone, more than 693,479 people were arrested for marijuana offenses — and 87% of these were for simple possession. That's one marijuana arrest every 51 seconds. Every year, there are more marijuana arrests than for all violent crimes combined.
Your non-tax-deductible gift to MPP will help fund MPP's lobbying efforts to change state and federal laws. (Tax-deductible gifts help fund public education.)
If you join MPP's monthly donor program at a level of $5 or more, you will receive regular updates on our work. You will also receive your choice of a coffee mug, DVD, or book.
We are required by federal law to tell you that any donations you make to MPP may be used for political purposes, such as supporting or opposing candidates for federal office. Please see our membership gifts page for choices and then make your selection on the next page.
