Being informed is an important part of being an activist.
In order to be an effective activist you need to be ready with your facts when the opportunity arises to educate. As you become more informed about the facts relating to marijuana your confidence about speaking out will grow, along with your ability to be persuasive.

I've tried to organize the information in this section in a way to make it easy to find what you need quickly. This section of the site is also intended to be used as a resource when writing letters to newspaper editors, to politicians, and for call-in radio or TV shows.

I recommend joining and participating in an online cannabis forum to get connected to others in the cannabis community. The pot-friendly environment is enjoyable and you'll become more educated about cannabis and cannabis laws, and you'll hear about upcoming events and opportunities to help out.

EMCDDA, Lisbon, June 2008
(The European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction)

The EMCDDA’s cannabis monograph addresses one basic question. How can I find quality information on cannabis, amid all the bias and opinion?

The monograph is divided into two volumes:

The first volume centres on political, legislative, commercial and social developments relating to cannabis. Its core audience thus comprises policymakers, sociologists, historians, journalists and those involved in enforcement.

The second volume is targeted at drugs professionals working in the fields of treatment, prevention and healthcare
