Travel Guru Rick Steves Tours U.S. to Support Ending Marijuana Prohibition
Author: MPP  13/02/2018 - 13:00:00

Travel guru Rick Steves will visit the nation’s capital today, Feb 13, to advocate for legislation to end federal marijuana prohibition. Today’s events are part of a tour, during which Steves and other marijuana policy reform advocates are urging lawmakers to support legislation to make marijuana legal in their states.

Steves will join representatives of the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) and the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) for Congressional briefings on Tuesday morning to discuss the positive experiences states are having with regulating marijuana and why lawmakers should support legislation that allows states to determine their own marijuana policies.

The House briefing was organized in cooperation with the Congressional Cannabis Caucus, a group of representatives from states that have made marijuana legal for adults and who support reforming federal marijuana laws.

Steves was a major proponent of the law passed by Washington state voters in 2012 regulating and taxing marijuana.
