This is not about a War on Drugs. This is about a Defense of our Brains, the repository of our humanity.

Our Mission

Every Brain Matters is a community of support, advocacy, and science.  Join us, as we call for a cultural change with the widespread use of our logo, which unites us and symbolizes both “freedom from marijuana” and optimal brain and environmental health. The public has been deceived and misled regarding marijuana products and their effects, which has led to a public health crisis. No matter what decisions are made or how much the drug culture expands, we will “Keep On Keepin On”, because we wholeheartedly know that Every Brain Matters.

Every Brain Matters Support/Recovery

We acknowledge that the general public and many support groups don’t understand the true and devastating impacts of marijuana.  So many times it’s hard for us to share honestly how today’s more potent, more dangerous marijuana has affected our lives and families as we are not taken seriously in the addiction community.  So we respectfully invite you to an online group, Every Brain Matters Support/Recovery Group, a community of supporters who understand and encourage healing and growth in response to marijuana use and addiction.

Every Brain Matters Advocacy

This group has been created for those who want to advocate against the legalization/commercialization of marijuana, and for strict regulation and preventative measures in areas where this drug is already legal. The goal of this group is to work together as a team to make action-based short and long-term goals regarding marijuana policies, education, public and political awareness, regulatory practices, and other actions that will help curtail the widespread acceptance, commercialization, and normalization of marijuana. To learn more contact us at info@everybrainmatters.org

Every Brain Matters Science

Why does every brain matter?

“The causal link between marijuana use and the development of psychosis is quite simply the most well-replicated, high-impact finding in schizophrenia research today. Given current use rates and the strong potency of the drug available, it stands to be responsible for a larger proportion of schizophrenia cases than any other established factor. Who may be at risk cannot be reliably predicted. The time is long overdue for the surgeon general and American neuroscientists and psychiatrists, along with their universities and professional societies, to inform the public and for journalists to pay heed.”

– Dr. Christine Miller

How do drugs affect our environment?

There’s a Silent Poison affecting our environment, and it’s called marijuana.

Drugs are negatively impacting our environment, especially with the expansion of marijuana growing sites. Every Brain requires a healthy environment to thrive. Marijuana not only is poisoning our brains, but it is also poisoning our waters, soil and forests, and animals, and using up valuable natural resources.
