To: Candidates for Legislative Offices and Interested Parties:
With nine states now having legalized adult-use marijuana, and 30 states authorizing medical marijuana access, issues surrounding cannabis policy have taken center stage in elections from the local level to Congress. Over 90 percent of Americans support medical marijuana access and 60 percent support legalizing and regulating marijuana in a manner like alcohol. Supporting sensible reform to our nation’s marijuana laws is not just overwhelmingly popular, it is the economic, scientific, and moral thing to do.
If you are running for any elected office in 2018, it is very likely voters will want to know your position on marijuana policy.
