MARIN RESIDENTS FOR PUBLIC HEALTH CANNABIS POLICIES is a grassroots organization run by local volunteers.
We are a community-based group of volunteers who organized in 2020 to educate the community and local policymakers on the impact of commercial cannabis. Founded by Laurie Dubin and Michelle Leopold, we work in partnership with local health care professionals, public health advocates, educators, parents and teens.
Recently, Marin has seen a self-interested cannabis industry aggressively pursue profits at the expense of public health. We believe public health concerns deserve priority in our community.
- M4PH is not anti-pot. We are supportive of the legitimate uses of medical marijuana and the decriminalization of cannabis for responsible adult use.
- We believe locals are entitled to a process that is fully transparent and not driven solely by profits or industry pressure. We offer a public health approach and encourage public participation in crafting policies that impact local communities.
- Our educational efforts assist residents and policymakers in making informed decisions based on the facts – not industry spin.
- Corporate interests do not care about the impact on youth or public health in our communities. Marin Residents for Public Health Cannabis Policies do. We watch for and report improper marketing and illicit advertising of cannabis products and services in our area.
