CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY JOINS THE LEGALIZATION CAUSE
For creating an incredibly successful game in “Cards Against Humanity” (CAH) the team behind it is very much for humanity, now being in the forefront of Cannabis Activism. Just a few months Co-Creator Max Temkin said he would buy & publish the Internet browsing histories of Congress Members who voted to allow Internet providers to sell private customer data to advertisers, and now they’re on the move to get cannabis legalization passed in the state of Illinois. The CAH team has created a $5.00 “Weed Pack” edition of the game, with all profits from the sales of the expansion packs going to the Marijuana Policy Project a non-profit organization fighting to help legalize cannabis. So every pack you purchase, you’ll not only be getting new cards for your next game, but you’ll also be helping the lives of cannabis users in Illinois.
“A recent poll says that 66 percent of Illinois voters support regulating marijuana like we do alcohol. So, you’re telling me this effort is something the vast majority of people support that makes everyone happy and pays for our schools and roads, and we’re not doing it?” – Max Temkin
In the past two years, Cards Against Humanity donated about $4 million to different charities, and more than $1 million to internet privacy foundations. Clearly CAH team have their morals in line.

“We’re proud to support the Marijuana Policy Project because our current marijuana laws are failing. Nationally, there are more arrests for marijuana possession each year than for all violent crimes combined.
The Marijuana Policy Project has been at the forefront of changing marijuana laws for the better, in Illinois and nationwide.” – Jo Feldman, Cards Against Humanity head writer
They have donated an initial $70,000.00 to the Marijuana Policy Project, and will continue to give donations from their Weed Packs sales until legislation is passed. Lawmakers in Illinois introduced a bill to legalize the sale of cannabis for people age 21 and older in March. The bill, which calls for allowing possession, personal cultivation, and sales of small amounts of cannabis, is scheduled for a vote in January 2018.
