Fireside Chats with NCIA’s Government Relations Team: Spotlighting State Ballot Initiatives
NCIA’s #IndustryEssentials webinars are our new weekly educational series featuring a variety of programs allowing us to provide you timely, engaging and essential education when you need it most. The Fireside Chat series of NCIA’s #IndustryEssentials webinars are an exclusive opportunity for NCIA members to hear from our government relations team and guests about the latest developments in federal policy.
In just a few short weeks, Americans will decide who will occupy the White House for the next four years and which party will hold the majority in both chambers of Congress. In addition, voters in Montana, South Dakota, Arizona, and New Jersey will cast their ballots on adult-use cannabis initiatives, while those in South Dakota and Mississippi will do the same for medical marijuana. These ballot initiatives are sure to make history, and there is no doubt that they will influence cannabis policy in Washington, DC.
Please join panelists to discuss each of these initiatives, the possible outcomes, and how it will affect federal policy priorities. Will Arizona voters legalize adult-use cannabis after the razor thin loss in 2016? Could South Dakota become the first state to legalize medical and recreational cannabis in the same election? Will conservative Mississippi become a medical cannabis state? We’ll dive into the specifics on each referendum and make sure you have all of the relevant information ahead of Election Day to make sure you’re up to date on the latest efforts and have all of the details for you and your business.
