Washington, D.C. – The National Cannabis Roundtable (NCR) today released the following statement in response to the House Judiciary Committee’s consideration of the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act (MORE Act).
“The National Cannabis Roundtable applauds the efforts of the Judiciary Committee for its leadership and commitment to advancing federal policies that will begin to resolve the problems and injustices in communities adversely affected by the War on Drugs by providing opportunities in the cannabis industry for minority and women-owned businesses, and righting the wrongs caused by federal prohibition,” said Terry Holt, Spokesperson for the National Cannabis Roundtable.
The National Cannabis Roundtable promotes common sense federal regulation, tax equality and financial services reform and supports changing federal law to acknowledge states’ rights to regulate and manage cannabis policy. The membership of NCR represents every aspect of the cannabis supply chain. Our members operate in 23 states with legal cannabis programs, including the District of Columbia. We are growers, processors, retailers, wellness centers, investors, entrepreneurs, and publicly traded companies. Learn more at www.nationalcannabisroundtable.org
