In the United States, the use and possession of cannabis is illegal under federal law for any purpose. Despite recreational use of cannabis being legalized in 17 states the United States still has much work ahead in the decriminalization and legalization of cannabis. The injustices of these laws have led to discriminatory acts harming the health and safety of our communities.
We at Souvenir Jewelry recognize the importance of utilizing our platform to highlight organizations that are doing direct work in our communities. We encourage all to see how they can assist their local organizations in the advocacy of decriminalization and legalization.
We have included links below to direct support organizations dedicated in the advocacy of those affected.
