Colombia Decriminalizes Cocaine and Marijuana, As Latin American Momentum for Drug Policy Reform Continues
Grass Roots Activism
There are many forms of activism. You can tell your friends, family and co-workers about what you believe, you can donate time or money to a campaign, you can even opine on any subject and share it with people all over the world on the internet.
In the video below you get to see one of the most basic, ground-level forms of activism there is: signature gathering. If there is something on your state ballot you support, it likely got there through signature gathering. It’s a mechanism whereby state officials know a lot of people want a chance to vote on something; it’s one of the pillars of our form of government.
In the video below Mike Cann and friends gather signatures for marijuana legalization in Massachusetts and to get Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson on the statewide ballot. If you’re good at interacting with the public and are looking for ways to get active in the marijuana law reform, search the internet for any local measures that are in the signature gathering phase. If there are none, see how you go about starting a ballot issue of your own.
The World Wide Web is full of great information for getting more active in your favorite issues, just find what you’re the most passionate about.
