Action

This is a section of links provided by Norml that WeVape aggregated to provide information on how we can be proactive in the fight against marijuana prohibition. Our position is that free adult humans have an inherent right to partake in marijuana for medical or personal use. The War On Drugs has only enriched illegal drug cartels, the for-profit private prison industry, and law enforcement budgets.

An end to this failed policy is what the majority of Americans want. WeVape believes drug abuse is a health problem that should be handled with treatment and counseling, not incarceration.
