Cannabis advocacy is important for people of any age, gender and orientation to stand up for and defend the rights of oneself and others. The counter culture industry continues to strive with rallies, demonstrations and events which also helps to educate people and eliminate stereotypes.
It is important for advocates to remember to visualize the change you want to make before acting. Dream it and then do it. We’ve made a lot of progress over the years and it’s only up from here.
To help you get started, below you will find links to sites we think are important. Let us know of others sites we should see. Get involved – you may not be interested in politics but politics is sure interested in you.

Cannabis Rights Coalition – http://cannabisrightscoalition.ca/
The Cannabis Rights Coalition was founded in order to effectively address public concerns related to Health Canada's recently proposed regulations within "Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations". Health Canada is proposing to deny sick and/or disabled persons to produce their own medicine or have a caregiver produce it for them. The right to grow or have a caregiver grow medical marihuana has been in effect for 10 years now under the current program, and offers a less expensive treatment option for patients (almost 25% less cost using Health Canada's own figures).
