About this Organization
The International Women’s Cannabis Coalition was founded with the intent of bringing pro-cannabis women together in an alliance to end cannabis prohibition worldwide.
The war on cannabis is a war on families. We as women, wives and mothers, sisters and daughters, the cornerstones of the family unit, are tired of watching our families torn apart, our loved ones die, our children taken, our lives destroyed, over a beneficial and often lifesaving plant.
We are women whose first concern is our families. We understand that cannabis prohibition harms our families far worse than cannabis itself. We know that the repeal of cannabis prohibition would return the decisions about cannabis to the family, (which is where they belong). Our hope is that women everywhere, even those who don’t use cannabis, will come to realize that the greatest harm associated with cannabis is the prohibition against it.
Women were instrumental in ending alcohol prohibition in the 1930s. We believe women have a pivotal voice in the movement to end cannabis prohibition today. It is time we stand again, united, to end the damage inflicted on our families by cannabis prohibition!
The IWCC is dedicated to spreading knowledge and truth about the benefits of Cannabis in the hopes of ending prohibition forever and making the world a better place for our families and future generations.

Marijuana Policy Project (MPP)
Washington, District of Columbia
The Marijuana Policy Project was founded in 1995 in Washington, DC. The founders were members of NORML, but felt the organization should be more proactive. In turn, they broke away and started the MPP. In the time since its inception, the Marijuana Policy Project has garnered support from a number of influential parties and their advisory board includes celebrities like Jack Black, Bill Maher, Adrienne Curry, and Jesse Ventura. They have been instrumental to a number of changes in cannabis policy at the state level and aims to have the same effect on a national scale.
