Hold on, just one second before you read today’s news. Have you thought about giving some financial support to Marijuana Moment? If so, today would be a great day to contribute. We’re planning our reporting for the coming year and it would really help to know what kind of support we can count on.

  • Jonas Larsson: “Your work is of great importance to an enormous group of people here in the states where we both live, but also for cannabis users back where I’m from originally: Sweden. Over there the failed war on drugs rages on with increased intensity every year and users are stigmatized, shunned and punished left and right. Not just for possession, trace amounts of metabolites in your blood weeks after using can mean jail time. Smoking a joint can trigger a man hunt with police helicopters after your neighbor called the cops out of fear stemming from untruthful government propaganda. You’re providing a beacon of light for all of us that desperately want to see change in the world.”
