The purpose is to increase public and government support for drug policy reform. The rally is to protest the War on Drugs (prohibition) and the mistreatment of drug users.
There will be guest speakers, drug policy reform information and active visits to our elected officials.
The “War on Drugs” is increasing the market share and profits for the drug cartels.
The “War on Drugs” is overcrowding our violent, disease infested prisons.
The “War on Drugs” is causing sick and dying people to suffer (i.e. medical marijuana).
Prejudice and profit have dominated our drug policy for too long. It is time for us to take this struggle to the front lines! It is time for us to go directly to the public officials responsible for these laws and tell them what we want. It is time for us to demand freedom and equality. It is time for us to be treated better!
