Green Party: PA should follow Oregon and decriminalize drug use

PHILADELPHIA – Fifteen states have now legalized the adult use of cannabis (aka marijuana, ganja, reefer, weed, etc.). While you were occupied with the November 3 election, four states, Arizona, Montana, New Jersey, and South Dakota legalized cannabis, joining the other eleven states and two U.S. territories where it was already legal. Voters in Oregon State, where cannabis was legalized in 2015, went a step further and decriminalized heroin, cocaine, and "all drugs," a sentiment clearly stated in the Green Party platform. For many years the Green Party has called to "implement a step-by-step program to decriminalize all drugs in the United States." Continue reading

November newsletter – post-election edition

Thank you to all who voted Green in 2020, making a clear demand for the changes we need. While the scenery of the political theater changes, the circumstances of people's lives remain precarious. The climate catastrophe continues whether we prepare for it or not, and the empire continues its short-sighted pursuit of safeguarding the status quo. The Green Party of Texas (GPTX) retains ballot access through 2026. By holding the door open for progressive candidates to access the ballot without competing in a crowded Democratic primary, Greens serve as a pressure point to force issues into the public debate, and a very real threat that if progressive voices are continually denied they will go elsewhere.

The fight against Line 3 continues

Opponents of the oil project have explained: "If built, Line 3 would carry dirty tar sands oil through critical ecological and cultural resources including Ojibwe treaty land, wild rice lakes, and the headwaters of the Mississippi River, as well as enabling expanded development of tar sands, one of the most climate-polluting fuels on the planet." ~ Gabby Brown with Sierra Club Line 3 Continue reading

The Green Party fights on

The election is over, but the Green Party fights on! Greens in New York did not meet the new, unfair threshold to retain ballot status in New York State. That's the bad news. The good news is, we are not going anywhere.

Tune in to this interview with Green Party of New York Co-chair, Gloria Mattera, on where we are and what is happening. Continue reading
