Marijuana Justice Coalition

The Marijuana Justice Coalition is a broad coalition of national advocacy organizations, convened by the Drug Policy Alliance, who have joined forces to advocate for federal marijuana reform through a racial and economic justice lens.

Founded in 2018, the Marijuana Justice Coalition comprises of drug policy-focused organizations, in addition to civil rights, criminal justice, immigration, and directly impacted-led organizations united in the goal of passing federal marijuana reform that both acknowledges the disproportionate harm faced by low-income, Black, and Latinx communities, and works toward repairing this harm.

The Marijuana Justice Coalition has worked on the introduction and the historic passage of H.R. 3884 Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment & Expungement (MORE) Act out of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee. The Coalition continues to work to see the successful passage of the MORE Act through the U.S. House and Senate this Congress.
