We invite you to join us on Tuesday, May 4 at 6:30 p.m. for a virtual discussion on the status of legalization in the 2021 session and a walk-through of the details of SB 888 – Gov. Lamont’s legalization proposal.
You might recall that earlier this week we shared an updated bill summary reflecting the major improvements to SB 888 since it was first introduced. While negotiations are underway between the legislature and the governor’s office on the final details, we thought it would be a great opportunity to walk through the improved version of the bill and answer questions.
Joining us will be House Majority Leader Rep. Jason Rojas (D) and Rev. Tommie Jackson. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. and will be streamed on Facebook Live. Viewers will be able to submit questions during the event. I hope you’ll find some time to attend.
In the meantime, please spread the word and write your legislators, urging them to support legislation to regulate and tax the sale of cannabis to adults in the 2021 session.
