Victoria Stanzione’s Marijuana Internship Denied by Pepperdine University

The Marijuana Policy Project says Pepperdine has denied Victoria Stanzione the ability to intern at its Washington headquarters for school credit

The weed-decriminalization group Marijuana Policy Project says Victoria Stanzione, a Pepperdine University sophomore, has been denied the ability to intern at its Washington headquarters for school

The group suggested that Pepperdine, a Christian school, is not being very Christian-like in denying the student’s application. The Project notes that it does not promote marijuana use, just better drug law: MMP spokeswoman Morgan Fox says the student’s work would have contributed to “social justice:
“We are extremely disappointed that Pepperdine University would deny any student the opportunity to learn about public policy by working on this important social justice issue. We do not promote marijuana use, but we recognize that marijuana prohibition has failed and does far more harm than good. A growing number of clergy members are recognizing that criminalizing non-violent marijuana users is a destructive and misguided policy, and even more have spoken out in favor of allowing the seriously ill to use marijuana medicinally. Pepperdine needs to consider the message it is sending with this decision.”
