NORML Activist on Expungement and Marijuana Reform
Back in the 1930s, reefer madness spread across the globe.
“The devil’s lettuce” was deemed a menace. And a global war against cannabis began.
For decades, American pot prohibition sent thousands to prison.
But, as Bob Dylan sang, “The times they are a-changin’”…
A little shy of a century after cannabis prohibition took root, we’re starting to see a shift in the other direction.
California legalized medical cannabis in 1996. Last year, Canada became the first G-7 country to legalize adult-use cannabis nationwide. And today in the U.S., 11 states have greenlit adult-use and 33 have legalized medical use.
There are also more than two dozen countries that have legalized cannabis in one form or another.
But as we’re pushed and pulled by the markets each day on the latest marijuana headline, we as investors are looking for clarity.
That’s why I’m pleased that we’re joined today by Justin Strekal, political director for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML).
Strekal shares with investors when he believes U.S. federal legalization of cannabis will take place. And he breaks down what he thinks are the biggest obstacles to the end of prohibition.
He also provides insight into the one piece of cannabis legislation in Congress right now that investors need to watch. And he explains what needs to be done to pave the way for marijuana reform.
For all pot stock investors, this is an interview packed full of legislative answers.
Here’s to high returns,
