If you believe that the current “war on drugs” policies are as miscalculated and unjust as we do, then get involved.

- Educate yourself on the issue.

- Let others know about the issue
E-mail your friends, family and co-workers and let them know about this web site and ask them to sign up to get alerts.
- Let us know what is going on.
Although we might like to, we can’t be everywhere to read every article or see every television show. If you read a newspaper article or listen to a television show, forward the article to us at ABWF or call to let us know what you heard on the television show.
- Invite ABWF to speak to your school, Church, classroom, group, work place, professional network, and/or house meeting about “war on drugs” policies and ways to make a difference in Connecticut.
- Tell your story.
If you are negatively impacted by current war on drug policies, write your testimony and send it to us. Are you a patient who wants to use medical marijuana for medical purposes? Do you know someone in prison on an inflated drug charge? Can you not find a job because of your felony drug record?
Volunteer to make phone calls, write op-ed article to newspapers, help organize meetings and make presentations.
