The whole world is waking up from the nightmare of decades of cannabis prohibition, a policy based on straight-up racism, and a tool of out-of-control social control that deprives people of their right to grow their own medicine and their choice as to how to heal themselves while consolidating power in toxic industries. But New York remains stuck in the past, with high rates of arrests for personal use and a new medical cannabis law that will benefit few except deep-pocket corporate interests. However, there is a real possibility for change – the chance to make full legalization happen this year…if the people demand that their leaders make the change.

IF YOU WANT CHANGE, DEMAND IT
