Party with MPP in New York City

If you missed the Marijuana Policy Project's party at the Playboy Mansion last week, here's another opportunity to party with MPP:
MPP Awards Gala
6:00 p.m., Monday, June 12
Capitale, 130 Bowery, New York City

You're invited to join us for cocktails, dinner, and an awards program to celebrate the remarkable progress we've made as a movement toward ending marijuana prohibition.

The host committee for the event includes award-winning actresses Susan Sarandon and Mary-Louise Parker, TV talk show host Montel Williams, Richard Brookhiser of the National Review, and writer Steven Blush of Paper magazine and the documentary film "American Hardcore." Among the many notable guests will be U.S. Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), who will accept MPP's Legislative Leadership Award in recognition of his outstanding support for marijuana policy reform in Congress.
Live music will be performed by national touring act Medeski Martin & Wood - a recent addition to MPP's VIP advisory board.

Please visit to purchase your tickets today, so that you'll be certain not to miss out on this exclusive event! All proceeds will be used to support MPP's work to end marijuana prohibition in the U.S.


On Thursday of last week, MPP hosted a party at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles - the most well-attended and lucrative event in MPP's 11-year history. With more than 700 supporters attending, the sold-out event raised more than $170,000 to support our efforts to end marijuana prohibition.
Entertainment included a country swing performance by multiple Grammy winner Ray Benson of Asleep at the Wheel, and Hugh Hefner accepted our Pioneer Award for his role in helping to start the marijuana policy reform movement in the 1970s.

Entertainment-world VIPs in attendance included TV/radio personality Adam Carolla; comedian Tommy Chong; "Wedding Crashers" screenwriter Steve Faber; actors Patrick Fugit, Olivia Wilde, and Golden Brooks; and musicians Sia, Mike Simpson, and Waylon Payne.
See photos from the event here.


Given the enormous popularity of the sold-out Playboy Mansion event, you shouldn't wait very long to buy tickets if you plan to attend the New York gala. Seating is limited, so please buy your tickets now.
All proceeds from the event will support MPP Foundation's work to end marijuana prohibition. (A portion of each ticket purchase is tax-deductible.)

Please reserve your tax-deductible tickets today. I look forward to seeing you
on June 12.
