Remember Big Tobacco? They're Back.

It's Time To Put People Before Profit.

Preventing Big Tobacco 2.0

The marijuana industry is likely to be the Big Tobacco of our time. Let's prevent another
industry from profiting off of addiction.

Putting Public Health First

We stand with every major medical association when we say marijuana can be harmful. Read about the latest science and read why legalization is not working in U.S. states.

Advocating for Legal Reform

Just because legalization is a bad idea, doesn't mean we need to incarcerate users or give out criminal records. There is a middle ground between the extremes.

Where We Focus

SAM's leaders are among the world's most prominent voices calling for science-based marijuana education and awareness.
