Jaywalk to the DNC

Jaywalk to the DNC

Join us in Philadelphia as we demand all members of the Democratic Party endorse the full legalization of cannabis!

JAYWALK PLAN: On Monday, July 25, 2016, we’ll meet in the morning north of City Hall (1401 John F Kennedy Blvd, Philadelphia, PA 19107) in the center of the city at around 11am. We will begin our “jaywalk” between 1pm and 2pm (tentative) and make our way down to Wells Fargo Center using Broad Street. This is about a 3-4 mile distance and should take about an hour to walk. We need appoximately 20 volunteers to help carry the 51 foot inflatbale joint the entire march! Spread the word!

A caravan of DCMJ volunteers is driving up from Washington, DC on Monday morning and returning Monday night. If you need a ride or have questions about the jaywalk, please email DNC@DCMJ.ORG

Support Cannabis-friendly Candidates!

Got 4 hours and minutes to spare? Volunteer!

DC’s Primary Election Day is fast-approaching! Before you know it, Tuesday, June 14 will be here. On the following day, will we be stuck with misguided politicians like Brandon Todd, LaRuby May, and Yvette Alexander who consistently vote against the cannabis reform? Or will we elect candidates who support cannabis users, growers, and their families? THE CHOICE IS YOURS!

Of course you can vote, but you can do so much more! There are thousands of DC residents reading this email and if only a fraction of you volunteer your time, we will positively change the outcome of the Primary Election and the future of the District of Columbia. Volunteering for candidates you respect is the electoral fist bump👊 and we are urging you to give it.

We are asking all members of DCMJ to volunteer at least 4 hours & 20 minutes over the next couple weeks. Specifically, we are asking you to show up at the campaign offices this Saturday, June 11 at 4:20pm 👊

We are focusing on Wards 4 & 8 because these races have incumbents that are bad for DC on cannabis reform and good candidates for replacing them. After last night’s Town Hall Forum on Marijuana, we came to the conclusion that all of the Democratic Party candidates for At-Large (Orange, White, & Garber) have solid positions on cannabis reform. It’s the Ward-level races where your support really counts right now.

You can make phone calls to voters, knock on doors, or hold space at a busy street corner with signs. But first you have to show up this & next Saturday!

Don’t have time to volunteer? Put your money where your heart is at.  Donate $4.20, $42.00, or $420.00 these campaigns.  By choosing that amount the candidates will know the contribution came from a cannabis voter.

INVITE: Harry’s 5/20 – 5:20pm, Friday, May 20 @ the White House

It's 5:20! Obama is late on cannabis reform!

Join us at our upcoming demonstration in front of the White House on Friday, May 20th at 5:20pm. As you may or may not know, May 20th is the birthday of Harry J. Anslinger, one of the founding fathers of America’s failed war on drugs. Back in 1937, over the objections of the American Medical Association, he managed to use racist and xenophobic justifications to convince the Congress to pass the unconstitutional “Marijuana Tax Act“. We are going to celebrate his 124th birthday by participating in mass-civil disobedience alongside with our veterans in front of the White House.

The protest will begin at 05:20 PM outside the White House on Pennsylvania Ave. NW. It is legal to attend, however, please note that the event will be unpermitted with mass cannabis consumption. We ask you to come to participate, or to show your support to our veterans who are risking arrest by leading the die-in.
