There’s a new site (put together by some very good people I know) called The Marijuana Majority
But too many people who support replacing marijuana prohibition with legalization or decriminalization are afraid to say so. Because they donâ€™t realize that a majority of Americans â€” including some of the most influential voices from across the political spectrum â€” feel exactly the same way, these silenced supporters see speaking out as risky.
Marijuana Majority exists to help people understand that ending our ineffective and harmful marijuana prohibition laws not only makes perfect policy sense, but is a completely mainstream position that enjoys broad support.
On this site, weâ€™ve collected in one place quotes and videos from politicians, religious leaders, celebrities, medical professionals, members of law enforcement and others who think itâ€™s time to end the war on marijuana. And weâ€™ve made it easy to search by issue and by type of person or organization so you can, for example, see members of Congress, actors, medical organizations and business leaders who support decriminalizing marijuana, allowing medical marijuana or legalizing and regulating marijuana sales.
They hope to use the site to encourage other influential leaders to speak out and to make it easy for people to share these quotes with their friends through social media.
It’s a good project and worth checking out.
Update: Turns out they included me, as well.
