The Drug Policy Alliance is the nation's leading organization working to end the war on drugs. We envision new drug policies grounded in science, compassion, health and human rights and a just society in which the fears, prejudices and punitive prohibitions of today are no more. Legalizing marijuana has always been at the center of the Drug Policy Alliance's work. We advocate for the elimination of criminal penalties for the adult use of marijuana, the creation of a legal regulatory market for the production and distribution of marijuana, and the establishment of laws that provide and protect access to medical marijuana by patients. Beginning with California in 1996, DPA has led roughly half the campaigns that legalized medical marijuana and we're the only organization that played a role in all the legalization victories so far – Oregon, Alaska, DC, Washington and Colorado.
