91% of Americans support legalizing cannabis in some form, yet it remains completely illegal at the federal level. If Congress isn’t listening to the American people, then it’s time for us to get louder. Cannabis In Common brings supporters of cannabis legalization together under a unified campaign with a simple goal: remind our elected officials that cannabis legalization is incredibly popular with their constituents.
There are many reasons to believe the current Congress is the most cannabis-friendly in history, but it’s not cannabis-friendly enough. We have the power to change this—within the next year—if we make our voices heard. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is preparing to introduce a historic legalization bill called the Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act. For the first time ever, the Senate will address cannabis legalization in a serious way. There’s never been a better time to make some noise about this issue. We’re asking cannabis legalization supporters to do just that.
This effort is spearheaded by HeadCount’s Cannabis Voter Project with support from the U.S. Cannabis Council. Our core objective is to get cannabis supporters to engage in the democratic process by contacting their senators and sparking a healthy dialogue around this topic. The polling on cannabis is clear, but polls do not create change. People do.
