I get asked all of the time how people can support marijuana reform. Most of the time the question is being asked by someone who admits ahead of time that they don’t have money to donate, but that they still want to help. I know first hand what it’s like to be an activist with meager resources (cubicle warriors united!), but I don’t let that stop me from helping in other ways. Below are eight ways to help support reform that cost little to no money (just internet connection and stamps). If you think of other ways, by all means add them in the comments so that others can do them too:

  1. Contact your elected officials – Your elected officials have the power to introduce pro-marijuana measures. As such, contacting them is a good idea for obvious reasons. Elected officials value written correspondence, believe it or not, more than other correspondence according to all of my friends that are staffers (I was a public policy major). A staffer once told me that when the Senator he worked for received a hand written letter, they knew it took more time and effort than an e-mail or phone call, and that they had a ratio of how many other constituents must feel the same way. It takes the cost of an envelope and stamp, but a letter goes a long ways. Be thoughtful in your letter, present facts, be respectful, and get to the point.
  2. Volunteer for a campaign or organization – You not have money, but chances are you have time. Volunteer for a reputable campaign or organization. Just be aware that there are a lot of jerks out there that will use you up, take credit for your efforts when results are achieved, and scapegoat you because you don’t come from means when results aren’t achieved. Don’t let that discourage you from volunteering, but just keep it in mind. I’ve seen many FANTASTIC activists get chewed up and spit out, which resulted in them walking away from activism entirely, and that’s sad. I was almost there many times myself, but I was fortunate enough to have mentors that pointed this out to me early on.

Republican Debate Barely Hits Marijuana Question

Category: Politics | Posted on Fri, October, 30th 2015 by THCFinder

While it was predicted that the presidential candidates would be forced to speak out in regard to marijuana reform during Wednesday night’s Republican debate, it was somewhat disheartening, yet not altogether surprising, to watch the issue downplayed in true GOP fashion.

Despite this clash of the pachyderm being scheduled in Colorado, where marijuana has been legal for nearly two years, none of the candidates other than Ohio Governor John Kasich were asked about their position on the legalization of marijuana or the continuing challenges faced by the cannabis industry due to conflicting federal and state law.

When Moderator Carl Quintanilla hit on the topic of legalization, asking Kasich to offer some insight on whether he believes marijuana could be an economic powerhouse to the entire United States as it has been for the state of Colorado, the Ohio governor simply replied that he was not in favor of legalization because he is afraid it sends mixed signals to kids about drugs.

Sanders proposes nixing marijuana from federal list of dangerous drugs

Category: Politics | Posted on Thu, October, 29th 2015 by THCFinder

Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders announced his support Wednesday for removing marijuana from a list of the most dangerous drugs outlawed by the federal government — a move that would free states to legalize it without impediments from Washington.

The self-described “democratic socialist” senator from Vermont shared his proposal during a nearly two-hour town hall meeting with college students that he said was broadcast on the Internet to about 300 campuses across the country from George Mason University in Fairfax County, Va.

“Too many Americans have seen their lives destroyed because they have criminal records as a result of marijuana use,” Sanders told a live audience of more than 1,700 students, which erupted with applause. “That’s wrong. That has got to change.”
