THE NATIONAL MARIJUANA INITIATIVE
The National Marijuana Initiative is one of three national initiatives within the federal High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) Program. The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy has established HIDTA task forces all over the country to respond to both regional and national drug threats. The NMI’s purpose is to educate both the public and policymakers on issues surrounding marijuana.
Some of the services we offer include:
- Educational presentations on marijuana and the effects of its legalization for law enforcement groups, public forums, community coalitions, and legislators
- The NMI Speakers Bureau, which consists of independent subject matter experts who conduct informational presentations about their respective fields
- A public resource for valid information and reliable data based upon current research into marijuana and its impacts
