Call Governor Raimondo — Legalize Marijuana This Year!

“Enjoy 4/20, but remember: Marijuana is not going to legalize itself.” So says Tom Angell of Marijuana Majority. Governor Raimondo’s number is 401-222-2080 and she is well aware of the economic issues at stake this year. Free college? Cut the car tax? How do we pay for all this?

Here are some useful arguments from “Now is the Time” a comprehensive report prepared by Regulate RI:

Expand RI’s Economy and Create Jobs: (Keep in mind that marijuana is legal in Massachusetts NOW! They are moving forward and investors are not going to wait for us to get started.)

States like Colorado — currently ranked by U.S. News & World Report as the best economy in the nation — have proven that legal marijuana is an economic engine. Marijuana businesses will boost Rhode Island’s real estate market and provide work for ancillary industries, such as accountants, construction companies, electricians, HVAC specialists, security firms, and others.

Marijuana Prohibition Disproportionately Harms People of Color: From 2001 to 2010, black Rhode Islanders were arrested for marijuana possession at three times the rate of whites.

Do you really need to know more than that? If so go to “Now is the Time.”

Yes it’s 4/20 today. Do something!

Call Governor Raimondo at (401) 222-2080.
