The prohibition of marijuana has resulted in more than 26 million arrests in the past 80 years. Even in the age of legalization, more than 600,000 were arrested last year. With less Democratic power at the federal level and in many statehouses, convincing Republican legislators to repeal prohibition is a top priority in states like Georgia. Join Peachtree NORML and national NORML for a training on how to convince those who have been indoctrinated in the ways of Reefer Madness that marijuana decriminalization, medical programs, and outright legalization is the path forward on cannabis policy. You’ll hear best practices from those who have been on the front lines and participate in an exercise that will challenge your abilities to do verbal jiu jitsu in countering the tired old rhetoric of prohibition with facts, data, and a healthy dose of morality.
This training is for all audiences.
