NORML Match Grant: Extended Two Days To Lament Marijuana Prohibition’s Founding
Dear NORML members and supporters,
Over the last month $26,650 has been raised by NORML members and supporters in a $100,000 donor match put forward by new NORML board members Rick Steves and Justin Hartfield.
Thank you to the hundreds of donors who’ve contributed thus far—and employing football season jargon, I’m employing a national director ‘audible‘ to extend the match grant two additional days until midnight October 2nd.
Because October 2nd marks the day on the nation’s calendar seventy-six years ago when the federal marijuana prohibition law took full legal effect…and quickly claimed one of it’s first victims: Samuel Caldwell.
If you’ve not taken this opportunity to get your donation to NORML matched by these new and enthusiastic board members, please do so by Wednesday night if only as a personal statement –
-Against marijuana prohibition dragging on any further;
-For the nearly forty-three years of NORML’s hard and dedicated public advocacy work in favor of cannabis law reforms and helping the victims of prohibition laws
NORML—consisting of it’s network of over 140 local chapters and 600 plus lawyers—stands ready to continue to lobby and litigate in favor of these long overdue legal reforms as more and more states seek to join Colorado and Washington in the short coming years in legalizing the possession and sale of marijuana for adults.
With national and state polling continuing to affirm a sea change in Americans now embracing marijuana legalization and the Obama Administration recently announcing it is letting these states move forward as potential models for other states, the end of marijuana prohibition is indeed within reformers’ sight.
Please take advantage of this match grant in these remaining few hours to not only double your giving power at NORML, but to also register your clear disgust with the current national marijuana prohibition laws on their ignoble birthday.
Thanks for caring and sharing!
