We fight everyday for national cannabis legalization because we care about justice in all its forms. One of the biggest fights for justice today is the right to vote.
There’s a Constitutional amendment on the ballot in California right now that would restore voting rights to incarcerated individuals. If the amendment passes, it would restore the right to vote to approximately 100,000 Californians. This California initiative could pave the way for change across America, where nearly 2 million incarcerated Americans are currently disenfranchised. We’re joining our allies, Progress America and California Environmental Voters, to demand action to restore voting rights to all American citizens serving in prison. Can you join us?

For too long, our democracy has systematically silenced Black and brown communities. We’ve seen the tide turn in places like Maine, Vermont, and Washington, D.C., where the government has ensured incarcerated citizens the right to vote. We can and should make sure every state in the country does the same.
Our fight for justice expands beyond just voting rights or cannabis policy—we’re fighting to make sure all people are represented in our democracy.
We can’t organize for a system that doesn’t discriminate against cannabis users, without fighting for a democratic system that allows ALL voices to be heard. Join us today to demand California, and the rest of the country, secure the right to vote for incarcerated individuals.
Thank you for standing with us in this fight.
