The Women's Marijuana Movement on Tuesday, October 5, will coordinate news conferences throughout California and across the nation in support of Proposition 19, the California ballot initiative to control and tax marijuana similarly to alcohol, and to highlight the need for marijuana law reform nationwide.

"The Women of these United States are joining together and showing their support of Proposition 19 and the people of California to vote YES and take this historic step towards reforming our nation's marijuana laws," Cheyanne Weldon of Texas NORML told Toke of the Town.

"Throughout history, when women have shown their support of prohibition (or lifting of a prohibition), society as a whole has taken notice," Weldon told us.


"We are mothers, daughters, grandmothers, professionals, homemakers, artists... and we collectively recognize that the biggest harms caused by marijuana are the failed drug laws imprisoning nonviolent offenders and often forever affecting their quality of life, as well as their contribution to society, when previously many were or could have been productive citizens rather than a drain on the system," Weldon told us.

A list of WMM Day Of Action event locations and times is below.

If you'd like to coordinate an event in an area not on the list below, please contact WMM at women@saferchoice.org or telephone 303-861-0033.
