January 8 @ 9:00 am

Stand with us and send a life-saving message to our leaders and neighbors on opening day at the Arizona State Capitol.

Our thanks to the volunteers who made the 2017 message possible!
(this year the shirts are numbered…;) )

Opioids, alcohol, and other substances are killing people by the thousands. It is long past time to recognize the benefits of nonlethal, less addictive cannabis. Make it legal like aspirin, and we will save lives from addiction and overdose death.
