More Info June 17th, 2011 marks the 40th anniversary of Nixon's declaration of the war on drugs. Since that time, hundreds of thousands of people have been killed or wounded across the globe under the banner of drug eradication. As the World's primary funder of this campaign, the American Taxpayer must stand up and make clear that we must the put an end to the bloodshed.
In America, the government prosecutes upwards of 850,000 people per year for violating state marijuana laws. Almost all of these arrests were for non-violent marijuana related offenses.
Please join us on June 17th, in front of the White House, to remember those US citizens and civilians abroad who have been victimized by the Drug War and to demand an end to this destructive and immoral War.
