We are changing the conversation about cannabis policy. We are fortunate to live in a country where we have the right to vote and be a part of the public policy process. People are power.
It all starts with voting.
There are many reasons why the cannabis community doesn’t vote. The reasons are not important. What is important is that it change.
This doesn’t simply mean that it is time to go vote for cannabis. It is time for the cannabis community to get registered and to vote. Once we all do that, we can shape big changes. By voting together.
Over time good policy will:
- Ensure local permits to businesses in all counties.
- Ensure all patients can access medicine and that they can afford it.
- Ensure cannabis is safe for consumers.
- Restore and protect natural resources.
- Protect and improve public safety.
- Turn criminals into small business owners.
It all starts with you.
