New bipartisan political action committee, 420 IMPAC, aims to support cannabis-friendly members of Congress and target legalization opponents.
- Co-founded by longtime entrepreneur and political operator Jason Beck, the group will study lawmakers voting records to determine who to support and who to oppose.
- Beck, who has worked with Republicans and Democrats in the past, says the group's decisions are based solely on candidates' relationship to the plant, not their political party. “We don’t see red, we don’t see blue – we only see green.”
- It aims to be active during the 2022 midterm election cycle.
- The group is also working on plans to support interstate commerce.
