Here's a letter from our Co-Founder and Co-Chair Marc Brownstein announcing our new Cannabis Voter Project. So please read Marc's letter, visit CannabisVoter.info and make sure you are all set to vote:
We’ve heard it all... My vote doesn’t count. or.. There’s no point in voting, both parties are the same... Nothing ever changes... or does it?
Do you care about cannabis legalization?
Let's not forget that in all states where cannabis has been legalized, there was a vote by the people or elected legislature to make that happen.
Voting has already legalized medical cannabis in 30 states and recreational use in nine states. Three more states are voting on legalization measures this November.
With that in mind, check out HeadCount's Cannabis Voter Project and our new website CannabisVoter.info.
We created a singular resource for you to learn where your elected officials stand on seven major cannabis issues, from industrial hemp to outright legalization.
CannabisVoter.info also has links to the best of cannabis media, advocacy organizations, and opportunities to take action. And of course, it's a place where you can register to vote.
Check it out. Click around the website. Share it on social media. Let us know what you think. You might be surprised by what you learn.
Cannabis policy is incredibly unique. It is one of the only truly non-partisan issues in modern politics, with the power to engage people of all ages, races, and political affiliations. It’s an issue that shows how people’s votes can shape policy and directly change lives. This is why HeadCount launched the Cannabis Voter Project.
And if you wear your colors, grab one of these t-shirts and be a proud cannabis voter.
See you at a show,
Co-Founder and Co-Chair, HeadCount
