ELEVATE Northeast is proud to be a partner of The Parabola Center for Law and Policy, a think tank working to educate lawmakers and advocates about the potential ramifications of consolidated ownership in the marijuana sector, and to support their Federal Cannabis Policy Crash Course taking place on June 10, 2023.
Already, aspiring weed billionaires and powerful corporations like Amazon and Altria (aka Philip Morris) are hounding Congress to pass bills that would let them be the first to profit from federal legalization— leaving behind small business owners and the many communities that were torn apart by decades of over-policing.
It’s time to fight back. Parabola Center is bringing together a group of the country’s top drug policy experts to dissect the current political landscape and chart a better course toward comprehensive federal cannabis reform that centers all of us, not Wall Street gamblers.
Come ready to hear from small business owners, lifelong advocates, and policymakers at this half-day crash course. You’ll leave with a toolkit that will empower you to take action and make a difference in the coming fight to legalize marijuana the right way.
This event is open to the public. Tickets are $10 to cover the cost of the venue. All tickets must be purchased in advance and cannot be purchased at the door. Food is not provided.
