MPP is proud to be an official advocacy partner of the 6th Annual National Cannabis Festival (NCF), and we're excited to be joining in the festivities on Saturday, April 23 in Washington, D.C.!
Please join us as we celebrate progress toward ending cannabis prohibition with a day of education, advocacy, music, fellowship, and fun! Wiz Khalifa will headline this year's concert, along with performances from Lettuce, Ghostface Killah, Backyard Band, Dupont Brass, and more. Get tickets here.
MPP President and CEO Toi Hutchinson will be speaking on a panel — The Evolution of the Cannabis Reform Community — in the Culture Pavilion at 4:15 p.m. The discussion will center on the changing cannabis industry, how cannabis reform is tied to other national movements for justice, and how allied organizations can work together to continue to advance cannabis reform and justice for all. MPP’s Manager of Development Alex Langer will moderate the session.
Before that, Toi will also be moderating another panel — In Conversation: Gary Chambers & Doug Gansler — at 2:30 p.m. in the Culture Pavilion, where the focus will be on two pro-legalization candidates, Gary Chambers (candidate for U.S. Senate, Louisiana) and Doug Gansler (Gubernatorial candidate, Maryland). It should be an interesting discussion!
In addition, Toi will be offering the introduction for a special message from Congressman Dave Joyce (OH) at the National Cannabis Policy Summit on Friday, April 22 at the Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center in D.C. Rep. Joyce is co-chair of the Cannabis Caucus and an ally who is dedicated to the swift and responsible end of cannabis prohibition.
Last, but not least, MPP will have a booth at NCF in the Advocacy Area, so please stop by to say hello! We’ll have MPP merch available, and we can tell you all about the work we’re doing on a daily basis to end cannabis prohibition across the country.
We hope to see you at NCF!
