A coalition calling itself the Cannabis Consumer Policy Council has set off Spark the Vote, a get-out-the-vote effort based on in-store and online customer engagement.
Spark the Vote
- The CCPC‘s national voter registration and mobilization campaign connects Spark the Vote with retailers across the country to launch contactless voter-registration stations. Nonpartisan virtual events on policy issues are also in the works.
- “The citizen initiative process has been one of the most successful vehicles driving the modern cannabis reform movement. While these achievements have come on a local and state level, the industry is finally in a place to mobilize customers on a national scale,” said Campaign Director Jimmy Fremgen.
- Partners include the Cannabis Equity Alliance, the Cannabis Voter Project, Teamsters, Turnout Nation, and Americans for Safe Access.
- A new study from Yale counts California among the legal, Western states seeing large declines in vaping-related injuries.
