We here at DRCNet are pleased to announce the establishment of the Medical
Marijuana Support Fund (MMSF). The MMSF is a collaborative project of the
Drug Policy Foundation, the National
Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, the Criminal
Justice Policy Foundation and the Drug Reform Coordination
Network. The fund has been established to offer patients, activists
and organizations both financial and technical assistance in the following
- Assistance in developing and drafting legislative language.
- Technical assistance in program design for projects implemented after
medical marijuana initiatives/ legislation have been passed.
- Experts to testify at public health hearings or forums.
- Experts to testify at trial in relation to medical necessity defense.
- Printing of promotional and educational materials directly related
to a specific policy goal.
If you or your organization is interested in applying for one or more
of the above-mentioned types of assistance, contact Whitney Taylor at the
Drug Policy Foundation at (202) 537-5005 to request an official application.
If you are interested in making a donation to the Medical Marijuana
Support Fund, Whitney can help you with that as well. (Be sure to mention
you heard about it from DRCNet!)
