The Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) is a non-profit organization that advocates for the reform of marijuana laws in the United States. With headquarters located in Washington, D.C., MPP has been working since 1995 to change public policies that criminalize the responsible use of marijuana.
Through advocacy efforts at the federal, state, and local levels, MPP has played a leading role in shaping the legal landscape around marijuana. The organization has been involved in drafting, promoting, and enacting a number of marijuana policy reforms, including the first medical marijuana law in the United States, as well as a number of successful ballot initiatives that have legalized marijuana for adult use in several states.
MPP’s mission is to end marijuana prohibition and replace it with a system of regulation and taxation that is based on science, compassion, health, and human rights. The organization works to educate the public about the benefits of marijuana, to lobby lawmakers to reform marijuana laws, and to support litigation that advances the cause of marijuana reform.
MPP’s website, mpp.org, is a valuable resource for those interested in learning more about the organization’s efforts and the broader movement for marijuana policy reform. The website provides news and updates on marijuana-related developments, as well as resources for advocates, policymakers, and the media.
