An army of voices can be more effective than one. It is essential to start a conversation with those who have the same goal as yourself.
Local advocacy groups exist in pretty much every state. Exchange your ideas, information, and experience with those who have similar views on the topic.
Some cannabis policy reform groups can be found in or near your community. Organizations, such as The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana laws (NORML), have many local chapters throughout the United States.
“Showing up to meetings or activist meetings is important. I would say showing up is step one,” Vicente said.

It’s smart to view the fight for legalization as a group crusade rather than a solo battle.
