Medical Marijuana Grants: Application Deadlines January 15, May 1, and September 1
December 28, 2001
On January 3 the Marijuana Policy Project in Washington D.C. announced that grants up to $50,000 will be awarded to "organizations and projects that articulate effective tactics and strategies to regulate marijuana similarly to alcohol and to make marijuana available for medical use. Grants will not be awarded to hemp-related projects, state ballot initiatives, or political campaigns." (But a major focus will be changing marijuana laws in specific jurisdictions -- especially passing medical marijuana bills in Maryland, New Mexico, and Vermont.)
The deadline for the first round of grant submissions is January 15, 2002, and the first round checks will be issued by March 31, 2002. For those who miss the January 15 deadline, the deadlines for the next rounds are scheduled for May 1 and September 1.
