Join talk show host Montel Williams and the Marijuana Policy Project for MPP's 10th Anniversary Fundraising Galas in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., to commemorate MPP’s victories over the past 10 years:

In Washington, D.C., U.S. Rep. Linda Sanchez will present the Public Face of Reform Award to Montel Williams, and former Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders will present the Legislative Leadership Award to U.S. Rep. Sam Farr. Acclaimed comic, actor, and Emmy Award-winning writer Rick Overton will serve as master of ceremonies, with additional special guests to be announced.

In Los Angeles, actor Tommy Chong will accept the Courage Under Fire Award, and Supreme Court plaintiffs Angel Raich and Diane Monson will receive the Marijuana Policy Reform Activist of the Year Award. Cast members Christian Campbell, John Kassir, and Amy Spanger from Showtime's musical remake of "Reefer Madness" will perform songs from the show. Comedian Tom Rhodes will emcee, with music by Ray Benson, Inara George, Lily Holbrook, and dj John Kelley.

Both events will feature clips from the new films "Waiting to Inhale" from Jed Riffe and "Chong's Not Here!" from Josh Gilbert.

All proceeds from the galas will support MPP's work to reform marijuana policies.

i got a news letter about this & i noticed this too

Request for Proposals:
Litigating for the Right to Use Marijuana for Religious Purposes

MPP is interested in providing funding for an individual or organization to conduct novel litigation for the right to use marijuana for religious purposes. Marijuana is used in Rastafarian and other religious traditions as a sacrament. It has been argued in a number of marijuana-related cases that such use should therefore be exempted from the Controlled Substances Act. Such arguments have generally been made without much success in court. However, recent cases, including a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in May 2002 in Guam v. Guerrero, provide unique opportunities to apply the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in federal courts. MPP will consider supporting such litigation. Individuals or organizations interested in applying for grant funding in response to this request for proposal will need to include in their application a detailed analysis of how their case differs from previous cases that have not been successful.

Please click here for grant application guidelines.
