Dear MPP Supporter :

The DEA has us in their sights! In a document outlining the latest developments in the War on Marijuana Users (PDF warning), the DEA lists MPP as the first of a number of deceptive organizations, claiming that we only support medical marijuana as one step toward our goal to fully legalize marijuana. Well ... even a stopped clock is right twice a day. MPP is fighting for full legalization, and as our 2011 strategic plan shows, we're winning.

The DEA knows we're a threat, and we need your support to keep the pressure on them!

Throughout the document, they describe accomplishments in the fight to end marijuana prohibition and nearly all of them were initiated, run, and/or funded by MPP, including:

    * In 2008, with support from the Michigan Coalition for Compassionate Care, Michigan became the 13th state to approve marijuana for medicinal purposes.

    * Massachusetts, backed by the Committee for Sensible Marijuana Policy, replaced criminal penalties for one ounce of marijuana with a civil fine in 2008.

    * The elimination of the Barr Amendment enabled the District of Columbia to implement Initiative 59, a ballot initiative that was approved in 1998 to allow for the use of marijuana for medical treatment.

In 2011, MPP is going to continue to fight tooth and nail against marijuana prohibition and the supporters of that prohibition, such as the DEA. Please, consider a donation today to help us fight this menace and bring an end to marijuana prohibition once and for all!

So in actuality it is the "drug enforcement agency division".
So the real abbreviation for them is:

Sounds much better
