 This April 20th also marks the initial anniversary of the National Cannabis Coalition.  So a lot of optimistic developments have occurred because our launch and we are so content to have played a compact portion in this ongoing civil rights battle.

Shortly soon after our launch, anti- marijuana Oregon Lawyer Common candidate Dwight Holton called out the National Cannabis Coalition by name in his final fund raising e-mail, for assisting bring in “national weed money” to his opponent, Ellen Rosenblum, a significantly a lot more cannabis-friendly Lawyer Common for the excellent state of Oregon. The Weed Blog did a tremendous job by educating activists and the public alike.  TWB even influenced mainstream media’s coverage of the race by holding their feet to the fire.  So a lot of Oregon activists worked tirelessly to assure that the major law enforcement officer be sensible on cannabis and it was an honor to help their crucial fight.

Beto O’Rourke, a congressional candidate understanding the significance of reforming drug laws, defeated a pro-Drug War incumbent.  Medical marijuana legislation has passed in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.  Rhode Island decriminalized individual amounts and legalized healthcare dispensaries.  Springfield, Missouri, decriminalized individual amounts of marijuana for a month (that battle continues) and St. Louis just passed a marijuana decriminalization ordinance (thank you, Show-Me Cannabis!).  And of course, Washington and Colorado legalized cannabis on that historic election evening.  This is fairly an in depth list currently, and I am confident that I am even missing some quite crucial victories.

On behalf of myself and NCC, I would like to sincerely thank every person that tends to make our perform doable and to every person carrying out so excellent perform for the lead to across the globe.  The activists and voters of Washington and Colorado, will usually be some of my heroes and their victories will usually be remembered as the turning point in ending a senseless, expensive war waged upon our personal nonviolent citizens.

We appear forward in assisting the subsequent wave of states legalizing cannabis.  Our fight for freedom and equality has been dismissed in the previous, but the truth about cannabis and the ills of cannabis prohibition, along with the difficult perform of a lot of excellent activists, are about to set us all absolutely free.
