Invest in the Future of Drug Policy Reform

Happy New Year Friends!

This was an amazing year for Students for Sensible Drug Policy.

We helped bring the issue of marijuana legalization into the national spotlight by launching the Just Say Now campaign, a project with our friends at Firedoglake, that provided important tools like a free online phone banking system for activists around the country to call voters in four states with marijuana reforms on the ballot.


Make a tax-deductible donation to help SSDP continue our important work.

Our chapter network continues to expand throughout the U.S. and with the addition of an international liaison, SSDP is now rapidly expanding outside of the states and into key places like Mexico City.  And for the first time, we hosted our international conference on the west coast and with over 500 people, it was our largest conference to date!  Now that 2010 is behind us, we're looking forward to 2011.

This is the last chance to give a tax-deductible gift in 2010, so please consider donating today.  Our goals in 2011 are ambitious, and we couldn't do what we do without the generous support of people like you.


Sincerely,

Please Make a Year-End Gift for Our 2011 Campaigns

As year's end approaches, I hope you will make a generous donation to support our campaigns in 2011.


 

StoptheDrugWar.org traffic has grown dramatically, as the chart to the left shows, most recently reaching half a million people during the month preceding the election. But the improvements to our web site and publishing which made that possible haven't stopped:

  • We are installing a new look on the site reflecting the optimism of the post-Prop 19 era.
  • We are setting up a mobile StoptheDrugWar.org web site.
  • We are preparing a major expansion of our publishing that will provide powerful tools to activists, journalists, policymakers and others to help them understand and make the case for drug policy reform.

Your support plays a major role in deciding just how far we can take these campaigns. Please make a generous donation to support our campaigns in 2011. A tax-deductible donation to DRCNet Foundation will support our educational programs; a non-deductible donation to Drug Reform Coordination Network will support our lobbying work. Donations can be made online by credit card or PayPal, and you can also use our donation form to print out a convenient form to mail in. Or, you can send a check or money order instead to P.O. Box 18402, Washington, DC 20036. Contact us for info if you are interested in donating stock.

As our thanks for your support, we continue to offer a wide range of books, videos and StoptheDrugWar.org gift items to members donating over certain levels -- visit our donation page to see the full list, or choose from among our three newest feature items:

  • Cannabinomics: The Marijuana Policy Tipping Point, book by Dr. Christopher Glenn Fichtner, points the way to a brighter future beyond the current drug war. (See our review of Cannabinomics here.)
  • Emperor of Hemp, a re-released memorial tribute edition of the classic video, honors the movement pioneer Jack Herer whose efforts enabled much more to follow. (See our review of Emperor of Hemp here.)
  • My Medicine, by Irvin Rosenfeld, tells his story as one of now only four patients in the federal government's medical marijuana program, and chronicles the history of medical marijuana as it's unfolded in the US to its incredible place today.

 
 

Donate $15 or more for Emperor of Hemp, $35 or more for Cannabinomics or My Medicine, $45 for the video and either book, $60 for both books, or $75 or more to get all three.

We have made huge strides, and reform activists from the rank-and-file up through the leadership tell us what a difference our work makes for them. But we need your help to ensure that this time of change will bring needed change, for a disadvantaged, demonized and under-represented group in our society, the targets of the brutal War on Drugs. Please donate generously today, and together we will make things happen.

Thank you very much for working to change this country's drug policies and for continuing to be part of StoptheDrugWar.org. And thank you for lending your support to our efforts at this important hour. Your contribution has never been more important.

A Brighter Future Beyond Prohibition

P.S. Every day that goes by, 4,000 people are arrested for drug offenses, the vast majority of them minor, and half a million nonviolent drug offenders languish yet another day in the staggering number of prisons and jails the government has very unwisely built. It's time to stop this senseless tragedy and shocking injustice. Please increase your commitment to ending the drug war by donating to StoptheDrugWar.org today. Thank you!

Tax Deductible Donations Support Reform in 2011

Dear StoptheDrugWar.org reader:

If you have been following Drug War Chronicle or our Speakeasy blog, you have a sense for why drug reformers believe that a brighter future beyond prohibition is ahead of us. We've reported on California's Prop 19 marijuana legalization initiative -- the positive media coverage it got, the new allies it brought in, the closeness of the vote in a year that favored conservative election turnout. We've talked about polling results showing national support for legalization approaching the 50% mark. And many other positive developments here and around the world as well. Our time will be here soon.

I've also written here about the phenomenal success that our newly-redesigned web site has had in its first few months. The improved site, our more up-to-the-minute publishing, and the excitement of Prop 19, all combined to bring more than half a million people to StoptheDrugWar.org during the weeks leading up to the election. We are taking the anti-prohibitionist message to more people than ever.

If you are doing tax-deductible, charitable giving in 2010, would you be willing to include our educational nonprofit, DRCNet Foundation, among the organizations you are supporting? If you're not doing tax-deductible donating at this time, would you instead make a non-deductible donation to our lobbying nonprofit, Drug Reform Coordination Network? Please consider making generous donations to one or both of these entities at this important time.

We are pleased to offer three new membership premium gifts, reflecting our optimism for the future:

  1. Cannabinomics: The Marijuana Policy Tipping Point, book by Dr. Christopher Glenn Fichtner, points the way to a brighter future beyond the current drug war. (See our review of Cannabinomics here.)
  2. Emperor of Hemp, a re-released memorial tribute edition of the classic video, honors the movement pioneer Jack Herer whose efforts enabled much more to follow. (See our review of Emperor of Hemp here.)
  3. My Medicine, by Irv Rosenfeld, tells his story as one of now only four patients in the federal government's medical marijuana program, and chronicles the history of medical marijuana as it's unfolded in the US to its incredible place today.

Donate $15 or more for Emperor of Hemp, $35 or more for Cannabinomics or My Medicine, $45 for the video and either book, $60 for both books, or $75 or more to get all three.

Resources are tight in the drug policy reform movement right now, despite the excitement of the election. At StoptheDrugWar.org we have therefore focused our efforts on the work that we're the best at -- high-quality, journalistic level, original publishing about the drug war; and using our web site and email list to grow and support the entire drug reform movement -- Prop 19, sentencing reform, medical marijuana in the many states, everything.

We have made huge strides, and reform activists from the rank-and-file up through the leadership tell us what a difference our work makes for them.

But because the economy and funding situation is what it is, we need your help as this special year draws to a close -- please make a generous donation supporting StoptheDrugWar.org today.

Time is running out to buy your tickets, so take action today and join us at this magical event on Saturday, December 11th! 

Last year's Mission event was extraordinary, but we're topping it with this year's The Mission: Winter Ball. We'll be celebrating the dramatic, MPP-backed passage of medical marijuana in Arizona as well as discussing plans to pass a tax and regulate initiative in California in 2012. Be sure to get your tickets today!

All of this, taking place at the exquisite Hacienda Del Pinto, a 13,000 square foot Mexican-styled villa in Sonoma's Valley of the Moon.

We expect tickets to sell out quickly, so purchase yours today!

This is your chance to rub elbows with some of the most influential and popular figures in the marijuana policy reform movement while enjoying a night of food, drink, and entertainment. And just in case all that's not enough: creative attire is encouraged.

Finally, MPP wishes to thank its partners, who made this event possible: Altitude Organic Corporation, Zephyr Vaporizers, SPARC, Weed Maps, and Vapor Room.

Please, join us for The Mission: Winter Ball and prepare to experience an event that will be both memorable for you and beneficial to MPP's continually successful efforts to end marijuana prohibition.

I Don't Want to Be a Criminal

 

 

Dear friends:


Hello, my name is Kathy Reynolds and marijuana saved my life.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1991, I knew that I was facing a challenge, but I had no idea what I was in for. My treatment left me feeling sick, weak, and unable to eat for three months. My weight was down and my health was faltering.

I tried every medication available to me, but nothing my doctor prescribed helped — some even made things worse. With all other options exhausted, my doctor told me that marijuana might be able to help. So, I used marijuana for the first time and it saved my life.  The near-instant relief from the nausea allowed me to start eating again, regain my health, and beat my cancer.

That was nearly 20 years ago. But today I face a new battle.  I now have a painful degenerative bone disease as a result of bone marrow transplants received during my cancer treatment. I know my condition could be improved by medical marijuana, but I am left with the terrible choice of living with pain or living as a criminal.

That's why I'm asking you to please support the Marijuana Policy Project's "26 by 2012" campaign.  MPP wants to remove the federal government's prohibition on medical marijuana, which basically requires 26 states to have laws making medical marijuana legal.

To achieve this goal, MPP plans to run a number of difficult medical marijuana ballot initiatives in 2012, beginning with Arkansas right now.  Signature drives are expensive, though, costing approximately $180,000 in the case of Arkansas, and MPP can't begin the 18-month-long process until they've reached $10,000 in new monthly donations.  Please, consider making a $10 monthly donation today.

MPP's "26 by 2012" campaign needs your support.  Reaching 26 medical marijuana states by 2012 will help ensure that patients like me can have safe, legal access to the medicine our doctors recommend.

Please support MPP with a monthly donation today.  I don't want to be a criminal. I just want to live a normal life.

Sincerely,



Kathy Reynolds
Bella Vista, Arkansas

New Campaign! 26 States by 2012!

 

 

Dear friends,

To have a shot at removing the federal government's prohibition on medical marijuana, we need at least 26 states to legalize medical marijuana. This will give us a clear path to victory in Congress and/or the federal courts.

As of today, medical marijuana is legal in 14 states and the District of Columbia.

To get to 26 states, we need to run ballot initiatives in some tough states in November 2012 – Arkansas, Idaho, Missouri, North Dakota, and South Dakota. And to get on these five ballots in November 2012, we need to start the signature drives soon, with the first being in Arkansas.

Please help MPP succeed with a new experiment: I want to see if we can fund the entire signature drive in Arkansas through monthly credit card donations from you and others on this e-mail list. Please start donating $10 or more on your credit card today.

As soon as we get up to $10,000 in monthly donations, we'll start funding the signature drive in Arkansas. Public opinion polling shows that 58% of Arkansans would vote for a medical marijuana initiative there, so the key is to put such a question on the ballot for them to approve.

Assuming a typical validity rate of 60% for signatures collected, we'll need to collect 110,000 gross signatures in order to end up with the required 65,000 valid signatures. It costs about $1.50 to collect and verify each signature, so here's the cost of the campaign:

110,000 gross signature x $1.50

$165,000

legal fees, printing, travel

$15,000

TOTAL COST

$180,000

 

 

 

 

The signature drive will take about 18 months to complete, so as soon as you and other allies begin monthly credit card donations totaling $10,000, we'll start the signature drive, and then you can sit back and watch us win in Arkansas, and hopefully other states, too.

In a couple weeks, I'll update you on how much money we're receiving in new monthly donations for the Arkansas campaign.

Please help me show that this experiment can work — that fewer than 1,000 people across the entire country can join together to help the first state in the deep south to legalize medical marijuana. We need to do this if we want to get to 26 states.

Please donate $10 or more on your credit card today so that we can start the signature drive in Arkansas.Thank you.

Sincerely,

Rob Kampia
Executive Director
