Tax and Regulate

Illinois Senate votes to legalize — on to the House!​

If you live in Illinois, ask your state rep to vote yes to end cannabis prohibition in the Land of Lincoln.

The Illinois Senate just voted (38-17) to legalize and regulate cannabis for adult use! Now the bill moves to the House, which could vote at any time. There's no time to waste: the legislature adjourns on Friday.

Make sure your state rep is on the right side of history. Send an email or make a phone call today!

State lawmakers really do listen to voters, and just a handful of calls and emails per district can make all the difference. The vote is expected to be close.

In New Jersey, hopes of legalizing marijuana in 2018 or 2019 were dashed when the vote count came up a few votes shy. Efforts also stalled in New York and Connecticut.

Don't let this chance to end prohibition in Illinois slip away: Write your state rep today. You could also look them up on social media and politely ask them to stand up for justice there. And don't forget to rally your friends to do the same: Share this on social media or by email.

Do the patriotic thing – join us at the Liberty Belle Ball on July 7!

Marijuana Policy Project - Liberty Belle Ball at the Playboy Mansion

Our summertime fundraiser at the Playboy Mansion just got even more exciting. The Marijuana Policy Project and GreenLife Medical Systems present to you the Liberty Belle Ball where freedom is beautiful and victory is our goal.

Join us on July 7, 2011, as we proclaim our liberty from propaganda and blind acceptance of the status quo. We'll rally together to declare independence from our government’s shameful bias against cannabis as a medicine, an industrial fiber, and an alternative to alcohol.

The Liberty Belle Ball is a celebratory show of force for common sense marijuana laws. Get your tickets to the Ball today, before the price increases on Monday, May 16. Visit www.mpp.org/pb2011 for more details.

Part of the price of each ticket is tax-deductible, and 100% of the net proceeds will benefit our work to end marijuana prohibition in the U.S.
 
In other words, this is a win/win/win situation: You attend an unforgettable party, you receive a tax deduction, and you help change our nation's absurd marijuana laws.

In addition to the Mansion's famous attractions, the Ball will also feature a major music act, burlesque performances, patriotic body painting, a silent art auction featuring classic Marilyn Monroe pinup photographs, and many other delights.

Guests are encouraged to dress to impress. Those dressed as “liberty belles” will be eligible to enter a drawing for fabulous prizes.

Do the patriotic thing – join us at the Liberty Belle Ball on July 7!
