Thanks to those who already picked up their packages. It's going to be a
great March! See you there...

If you would like to become a member of the Global Marijuana March Toronto organization, you can contact us at: info@cannabisweek.ca, and give us your details and background. Key volunteer positions are still available.

This is an exciting time in Canada for cannabis law reform.. The GMMT organization is a great group of dedicated and passionate people, with terrific morale and a real sense of community in purpose.

If you want to enjoy GMMT during the weekend of the event but still have to be involved in one of the most important civil rights issues of your time, you can help us promote the event by distributing fliers and posters within your community.

E-mail us and we'll set you up as the event draws near.

The movement for legalization of marijuana and hemp is facing an uphill battle. Though some decriminalization measures have been introduced by the government of Canada, many activists believe that decriminalizing marijuana is not enough.

Meanwhile, everywhere in North America, countless medical and recreational users,
as well as growers, still face persecution from police and employers. Recent events
in Ontario, Alberta, and all over the United States, show that our rights as users of
marijuana and hemp are practically nonexistent.

This is why we have to continuously remind ourselves: just because once a year we
are allowed by the powers that be to gather together for a celebration of this wonderful plant,the fight is far from over!!

So roll a big one and get involved! Here are some of the many things you can do to
defend your rights.




Write to every Member of Parliament and demand complete legalization of marijuana!
Let them know that the people who elected
them demand that the plant that has medical, industrial, energy and recreational uses
must be accessible to all that need it!

Canadian Civil Liberties Association

Since September 11th...While it always behooves us to keep an open mind about any new measures, our open mind should be accompanied by a cool head and a skeptical disposition. If we were to needlessly surrender any of our precious freedoms, we could wind up awarding the terrorists a gratuitous victory.




Media Awareness Project
A worldwide network dedicated to drug policy reform. We inform public opinion and promote balanced media coverage.

We believe that prohibition is a system which unleashes powerful forces, most notably the illegal drug markets, that inevitably make the underlying drug problem worse while adding a series of costly unintended side effects, including damage to the very values upon which free nations have been founded.



Marijuana Party of Canada

The Marijuana Party began with the primary concern that the
Federal government should stop criminalizing cannabis.

Cannabis is a matter of Federal law because it is criminalized.

If possession and cultivation of cannabis was no longer criminal,
then the only remaining role for the Federal government would be
to possibly use the Federal spending powers to subsidize cannabis.

is intended as a resource for people interested in educating themselves about cannabis and
the politics that keep this plant illegal.

"We're not decriminalizing marijuana, to be technical, it will remain a criminal offense. What we are putting in place are alternative penalties, in using the Contraventions Act. I admit that using "decrim" at the beginning was not a good start, but over the past few months we have been quite clear about what we're doing."

[Martin Cauchon - former Justice Minister, during questioning
by the House of Commons Committee on Illegal Drugs regarding
the proposed "decriminalization" bill. November 2003.]


NORML - The National Organization of Reform of Marijuana Laws in Canada
The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws in Canada It's 2005, and Canadians are still victims of our country's failed marijuana policy. As the Senate Committee on Illegal Drugs unanimously concluded in 2002 after an exhaustive 20 month investigation: prohibition causes more harm to Canadians than marijuana itself.



We will testify in court how harsh the current regulations really are on patients who find themselves in need of cannabis. We will testify what crap the government tried to pass off as medical grade pot and why growing a variety of marijuana strains is absolutely crucial to relieving pain. We would have preferred to stay in the shadows, grow our pot, pay our taxes and be mute, we were happy with what we achieved so far but here we are and here we will testify.

Educators For Sensible Drug Policy has members in Canada, U.S.A., Australia, New Zealand, Jamaica and Japan. We are working to create a Speaker's Bureau of knowledgeable and articulate educators who can describe the impact of these failed drug policies on things like safety, the relationship between student/teacher, teacher/administration and student/administration and also describe the human and financial costs of current drug policies.

Unfortunately, our schools are often times the battlegrounds upon which the "War on Drugs" is waged, with our children always ending up the victims. EFSDP is committed to combating the Higher Education Act Amendment, D.A.R.E. in our schools, and the drug testing of students who wish to participate in extra-curricular activities.


Law Enforcement Against Prohibition

is a US-based organization of current and former
law enforcement workers who support
drug regulation, not prohibition.

LEAP's goals are: (1) To educate the public, the media, and policy makers, to the failure of current drug policy by presenting a true picture of the history, causes and effects of drug use and the elevated crime rates‹more properly related to drug prohibition than to drug pharmacology‹and (2) To restore the public's respect for police, which has been greatly diminished by law enforcement's involvement in imposing drug prohibition.
