We have some very exciting news: California’s Adult Use of Marijuana Act is officially on the ballot this November!
Now, as the campaign kicks into high gear, the real work begins. Legalizing and regulating adult use of marijuana in one of the nation’s most influential states will be a huge victory for drug policy reform, but to make sure it happens, we need to reach California voters and tell them why it’s so imperative to legalize and regulate marijuana.
Legalization and regulation of marijuana will create revenue estimated at more than $1 billion in California, in addition to the hundreds of millions of dollars the state will save in criminal justice costs currently being wasted on arresting, prosecuting, and imprisoning people for nonviolent marijuana offenses.
Californians need to hear from pro-reform law enforcers, one of the most influential groups in past successful legalization initiatives, on why legalization, regulation, and control is a more practical and ethical approach to marijuana policy. LEAP is ready to help bring legalization to California: our speakers are out in force, making presentations, talking to the media, writing opinion-editorial pieces, doing everything they can to support legalization efforts and connect with California voters. But we need your help to ensure a shift toward more responsible marijuana policy.
