Roundtable and Leafly Say to Congress: Cannabis Equals Jobs, Equity

The National Cannabis Roundtable and Leafly will jointly brief federal policy makers, including cannabis legislation author Ron Wyden, Hill policy staff and other cannabis stakeholders on Wednesday in a virtual event, “Cannabis Jobs Count: The 2021 Leafly Jobs Report.” The message for policy makers: bridge the differences and seize the opportunities for cannabis reform.

Kathleen Sebelius, NCR Honorary Co-Chair, and former Obama HHS Secretary said today, “The contours of federal reform done the right way are before us today: cannabis equals jobs, community reinvestment and opportunities for criminal and social justice.”

Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) a longtime champion for cannabis reform who is currently co-drafting legislation with Leader Chuck Schumer and Senator Cory Booker said, “Oregon’s cannabis industry is a robust contributor to the state’s economy, and I am certain that the industry could have a positive impact nationwide. I am working with colleagues in the U.S. Senate to end cannabis prohibition in a manner that not only supports this flourishing industry but also restores the lives of those most hurt by the failing War on Drugs.” said Wyden.
