Representatives Dana Rohrabacher (CA-48), Earl Blumenauer (OR-03), Don Young (AK-At Large), and Jared Polis (CO-02) on Thursday, February 16, will hold a press conference to discuss the role of the newly formed Cannabis Caucus and the future of cannabis policy.

Increasingly, federal cannabis laws are out of touch with American voters. Following the November election, 95 percent of Americans now live in states or territories that permit, to varying degrees, legal access to medical marijuana and/or cannabis derivatives. Additionally, a fifth of all Americans now live in a state with legal access to the adult use of marijuana. It’s time for Congress to catch up.

WHAT:

Cannabis Caucus co-chairs Rohrabacher, Blumenauer, Young, and Polis to hold a press conference to launch the Congressional Cannabis Caucus and to discuss the future of cannabis policy.

WHEN:

Thursday, February 16
2:00 p.m. (ET)

WHERE:

HVC Studio B (Enter through HVC 117)
Capitol Visitor Center
U.S. Capitol
Washington, DC
