Changing Hearts and Minds: One Lawmaker at a Time
Since last Fall, TLG has dedicated its efforts to Federal Legislative Advocacy for the Cannabis Industry. After visiting 100+ offices, TLG learned that to expand the number of lawmakers who support Cannabis, Industry needs to bring patient advocates to Capitol Hill to change their hearts and minds - One Lawmaker at a Time. Last week, TLG joined Public Affairs firm, Gide for a Congressional Press Briefing, "Kids, Veterans & Athletes: Connecting through Cannabis." With the leadership of Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Congressman Tom Garrett (R-VA) and Congressman Luis Carrea (D-CA), and thanks to the courage and generosity of our Cannabis advocates, retired NFL Player, Kyle Turley, former Navy Seal and Founder of the Veterans Cannabis Project, Nick Etten, and Holley and RayAnn Mosely, we delivered a message from the modern face and voices of the Cannabis Industry. We are mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, athletes, veterans, children - and every lawmaker on Capitol Hill has someone positively impacted by Cannabis in their lives. The may not know it yet, but they will soon - and they will come to embrace this Industry and this miraculous plant - One Lawmaker at at Time!
