The war on marijuana is now entering its final stages, and Montana NORML is gearing up to play its part. We are actively planning a voter initiative campaign for the 2016 presidential election that would tax and regulate marijuana for adults similar to Colorado’s program. We now have a financial commitment of over $500,000 toward that effort from a leading marijuana advocacy group interested in funding that campaign!
But it takes more than money, and there is much work to do. Real change can only happen if it is based on the time, energy and commitment of our supporters. In coming weeks, we will be asking for your help in forming and running several key groups to support our state-wide, multi-year campaign to put marijuana prohibition in the ground permanently.
One of our first steps is to form a communications committee to enable us to open up lines of communication with the thousands of Montanans who support an end to marijuana prohibition. If you are a writer, enjoy surfing the web, or have that gift of gab we want to put that talent to good use. Watch for that announcement very soon.
If you are in the Missoula area, please join us for the next Missoula Chapter meeting to discuss our plan, ask questions and share ideas:
