Marijuana Policy Project

MPP and MPP Foundation envision a country with public policies that (1) allow for the responsible medical and non-medical use of marijuana, and (2) minimize the harms associated with marijuana consumption and the laws that manage its use. To ensure the proper medical use of marijuana, licensed physicians should not be punished for authorizing the use of marijuana to seriously ill people, and seriously ill people should not be penalized for using marijuana if their physicians have advised them that such use is likely to be beneficial. Regarding the non-medical use of marijuana, adults should not be arrested for using marijuana in the privacy of their homes, and adults who use marijuana should be able to obtain it from legally regulated establishments and not from illegal drug dealers. Because MPP believes that the greatest harm associated with marijuana is prison, we focus 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
