Our nation’s prohibition of marijuana has cost the country billions, resulted in a massive increase in incarceration rates, funded criminal syndicates, and yet failed to stop people from using marijuana. It is a failed, costly and misguided policy that must end now. We are a group of all individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and political leanings that share the simple conviction that marijuana prohibition must end. That is why we are promoting the legalization and sensible regulation of marijuana through grassroots organizing and direct democratic action.
Just Say Now is a campaign for marijuana legalization, made of a transpartisan alliance of organizations seeking to improve our nation’s drug laws. Our effort is spearheaded by Firedoglake — a progressive blog and activist hub dedicated to bringing greater transparency and accountability to government. Our organization will work to organize an effective online/offline movement to help pass marijuana legalization in the elections of 2012 and beyond.
