Dear Supporter,

Moments ago, the Washington, D.C. City Council voted to decriminalize marijuana possession!

The bill, which goes into effect this summer, replaces criminal penalties of up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine with a civil penalty (similar to a parking ticket) of $25 for possession of up to an ounce of marijuana. It also decriminalizes marijuana paraphernalia.

This means that, outside of Washington and Colorado, marijuana penalties are now less punitive in our nation’s capital than anywhere else in the country!

This kind of work — in D.C. and across the country — is made possible thanks to generous contributions from institutions like MedBox and from MPP’s dues-paying members. According to our records, you have not yet made a donation this year. Would you please consider making your first donation of 2014 to help us achieve more victories this year, and help us meet all the goals outlined in our 2014 Strategic Plan?

Sincerely,

Dan Riffle signature (master)
