"Strong focus on electing candidates that support cannabis reform"

US (NY): Lawmaker launches equity-focused political action committee

A top New York lawmaker is launching an equity-focused political action committee (PAC) that will place a strong focus on electing candidates that support cannabis reform.

Assembly Majority Leader Crystal Peoples-Stokes (D) announced the EquityPAC earlier this week. The committee is centered on three policy pillars: cannabis, education and the environment. The leader will be discussing the PAC’s mission at an event in New York City on Saturday, alongside U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and two other members of the state Assembly.

The fact that cannabis reform will be a target issue for the PAC makes sense given that Peoples-Stokes has been a consistent champion of legalization in the state, playing a key role in enacting comprehensive reform legislation last year.

The leader has repeatedly emphasized the need to put equity front-and-center as the state prepares to implement retail cannabis sales.
