Issue #1 of our Newsletter will be coming soon. Stay tuned!


We are a student group dedicated to the reform of marijuana policy. We support the use of medical marijuana, its decriminalization and a common sense approach to drug education.

Our goal is to make MIT students aware of the illegitimacies of the drug war in hopes that education will result in a progression in drug policy. America sentences hundreds of thousands of people every year for non-violent offenses such as marijuana possession. Despite state rulings, the federal government continues to oppress the rights of individuals going so far as to remove the financial aid of students in need. Current drug policies are ill-conceived, racist, and contributes to the corruption and privatization of prisons nationwide. Because of these narrow views, a versatile plant is being demonized and its industrial benefits are squandered at the expense of the environment.

We seek to raise awareness of these issues though events on campus such as festivals, baked sales, speakers, and an annual IAP class.
