About Us

The Cannabis Education Project is an 501(c)(4) advocacy organization that grew out of the Proposition 19 field campaign of San Diego County. Senior organizers and supporters of Proposition 19 have decided to continue their efforts in San Diego County, with the goal of identifying and cultivating leadership and support for future legalization legislation and ballot propositions.  Cannabis Education Project is a diverse organization with Latino, African American and Filipino leadership. While we are a new organization, our organizers have extensive backgrounds in progressive campaign and community organizing.


Our mission is to educate diverse communities on the realities and benefits of cannabis in all its forms and failure of cannabis prohibition. 
Our goal as a group is to end the racial disparities caused by marijuana prohibition, end the violence and corruption caused by the black market, allow California citizens to economically benefit from its largest cash crop and allow patient and scientific access to valid medicine through community sponsorship of laws that would regulate marijuana.


To engage person-to-person outreach in communities of color in San Diego county, to explain the facts and debunk the myths of medical marijuana. We also aim to identify and cultivate anti-prohibition leadership in these communities prior to the anticipated 2016 legalization ballot initiative campaign.
