Tell the NY Senate: End Marijuana Arrests Now!

    1. Sponsored by

      Drug Policy Alliance

In the last decade, hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers have been arrested for possessing small amounts of marijuana. Now you have a chance to stop these ridiculous arrests.

Very soon, the NY Senate could vote on a bill that will end low-level marijuana possession arrests. It's our last obstacle to get it signed into law and we’re running out of time! Tell your NY Senator to pass the bill that will end marijuana possession arrests now!

      It's time to legalize Cannabis. It is safer than alcohol, tobacco, and prescription medications. Cannabis is not a killer, but a healer. It is medicine and can help everyone. It is time to stop the lies of the "Reefer Madness" days, look at all the positives and Washington state and Colorado.

      Cannabis is safe, should be legal everywhere, and will create new industry for our country. New jobs and be able to get out of our debts with countries like China. Please once and for all make it legal and stop all the nonsense and arrests of innocent people.

      It's a complete waste of tax payers monies. Also, it's not worth fighting a war that will never end.
