My friend Troy Dayton is a entrepreneur and drug reform activist living and working in California. He and his fellow activists have been working hard in support of Colorado's Amendment 64, a proposed constitutional amendment that would legalize the use of marijuana for anyone over the age of 21. Legalizing marijuana would save millions of dollars from being spent putting people in jail and buying police officers new guns and body armor; millions of dollars that could be spent educating our children or improving access to health care.


Legalizing marijuana would mean that thousands of families won't be ripped apart after a loved one gets locked in jail for a simple possession charge. Law enforcement could focus on solving and preventing real crimes with real victims and sick people would have better access to their medicine.


Troy is running a campaign on Indiegogo to raise money for a last-minute advertising push by the Marijuana Policy Project and needs your financial support. Click over to his page to pitch in on the good fight.


Here's a quick video of Troy talking about what's at stake.



Good luck Troy!
