Meet author Tom Robbins and support sensible marijuana policy!

Marijuana Policy Project Alert: Mass. July 25, 2007

Meet author Tom Robbins and support sensible marijuana policy!
Bestselling author Tom Robbins, who has penned such classics as Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, and the Committee for Sensible Marijuana Policy (CSMP) invite you to attend a VIP reception hosted by Woody Kaplan and Wendy Kaminer at their beautiful home overlooking the Charles River in Boston's Back Bay. This event will raise much-needed funds for the signature drive to place a binding marijuana decriminalization initiative on the November 2008 state ballot.
Find out more about this event and purchase tickets here.
The signature drive, which must begin on September 19 and end on November 21, will cost approximately $350,000. If we can raise the money for the signature drive this summer and fall, CSMP will be able to concentrate the next stage of fundraising on money for voter outreach and educational TV and radio ads. The initiative would change Massachusetts state law so that personal possession of a small amount of marijuana would be a civil fine instead of a criminal sanction and would be the first-ever statewide ballot initiative to remove all criminal penalties for the possession of marijuana.
Who: Woody Kaplan, Wendy Kaminer, and special guest author Tom Robbins will be joined by MPP's Rob Kampia and CSMP's campaign manager Whitney A. Taylor
What: VIP reception to support the Committee for Sensible Marijuana Policy
Where: 2 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston
When: Friday, September 14, 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Tickets: $250 in advance or $350 at the door.
Purchase tickets here.
Please join us for this VIP reception and learn about how CSMP intends to pass the first statewide ballot initiative to decriminalize marijuana anywhere in the country!
