Become a Member

The Drug Policy Alliance is the leading organization in the United States promoting alternatives to the war on drugs grounded in science, compassion, health and human rights. Members are the driving force behind our work. At present, we are the only organization in the country that has played a role in every successful marijuana legalization ballot initiative campaign. Those are just a few of our many victories, all of which have been made possible by our supporters and allied organizations.

By making a tax-deductible gift, you enable us to continue working for health-centered approaches that empower communities and reduce the role of criminalization in drug policy. Every gift made by a member allows us to take one step closer to ending the drug war, together.
