Be Heard on Cannabis

Friday, September 20, 2019

Neighbors,

 
We’re inviting Minnesotans to join the conversation about how we will safely and responsibly create a comprehensive framework for legalization and the most thoughtful adult-use cannabis law in the country. 
 
Legalizing cannabis for responsible adult use will expand 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, and expand personal freedom for Minnesotans, including the thousands of minor offenders who have been swept up in our criminal justice system.

We want to hear what Minnesotans think, which is why we launched statewide Community Conversations on Cannabis to hear from people in every corner of our state. Join us next week in Minneapolis

When: Wednesday, September 25, 7:00 PM
Where: Minneapolis Urban League, 2100 Plymouth Avenue North, Minneapolis, MN 55411
Who: Hosted by myself, Majority Leader Ryan Winkler, Assistant Senate Minority Leader Jeff Hayden, Sen. Champion, Sen. Dziedzic, Sen. Hawj, and Rep. Dehn with special guest Dr. Raj Sethuraju, Associate Professor at Metro State University

You can sign up for updates, take the Speaker’s cannabis survey, and find a community conversation near you at a new website here

Hope to see you there!

Rep. Fue Lee
