Be Heard on Cannabis

Tuesday, September 24, 2019


Happy first day of fall! I hope you're looking forward to the cooler weather and changing leaves. 

I wanted to let you know that we're inviting Minnesotans from across the state to join the conversation about how we can safely and responsibly create a comprehensive framework for legalization of adult-use cannabis. The first of 15 events was on Saturday in Duluth, and the next will be in Minneapolis on Wednesday

What: Community Conversation about legalizing cannabis for adult use
When: Wednesday, September 25, 7:00 PM
Where: Minneapolis Urban League, 2100 Plymouth Avenue North, Minneapolis, MN 55411
Who: Hosted by Majority Leader Ryan Winkler, Assistant Senate Minority Leader Jeff Hayden, Sen. Bobby Joe Champion, Sen. Foung Hawj, Rep. Raymond Dehn, and Rep. Fue Lee with special guest Dr. Raj Sethuraju, Associate Professor at Metro State University

Legalizing cannabis for responsible adult use can increase access and affordability for people who rely on it to treat PTSD or chronic pain, allow law enforcement to focus their resources on more dangerous crimes, advance racial justice, and provide relief for the thousands of minor offenders who have been swept up in our criminal justice system.

I hope you can make it! Your feedback will be important in helping us create a bill that responds to the needs and concerns of Minnesotans.
