Confirmed victory

Online email management provider Mailchimp.com refused to allow the Oregon Marijuana Policy Initiative (OMPI) to use their service to send out campaign emails, because the subject matter was related to marijuana.

MailChimp should be able to distinguish from selling marijuana and legitimate political activity.

We are not selling marijuana -- we're promoting POLITICAL CHANGE. As a legitimate political campaign registered with the Oregon Secretary of State, we're busy collecting signatures for an initiative petition to decriminalize marijuana and assist medical marijuana patients.

MailChimp.com should reinstate OMPI's account and not ban legitimate political activists again.

Don’t Ban Marijuana Activists Organizing for Political Change

Online email management provider MailChimp.com refused to allow the Oregon Marijuana Policy Initiative (OMPI) to use their service to send out campaign emails, because the subject matter was related to marijuana.

But OMPI isn't selling marijuana -- they are a legitimate political campaign, registered with the Oregon Secretary of State. They're busy collecting signatures for an initiative petition to decriminalize marijuana and assist medical marijuana patients.

OMPI is promoting POLITICAL CHANGE. MailChimp should be able to distinguish from selling marijuana and legitimate political activity.

Please reinstate OMPI's account and pledge to not ban legitimate political activists again.
