Grassroots group and coalition partners kick off cannabis legalization discussion

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Americans for Prosperity-Indiana (AFP-IN) on Monday hosted a rally in support of responsible cannabis legalization at the Indiana Statehouse. This event provided residents an opportunity to directly engage in the legislative process and have meaningful conversations on cannabis reform in Indiana. The grassroots group was joined by Rep. Jake Teshka, Sen. Kyle Walker, and Sen. Rodney Pol, alongside Reps. Craig Haggard, Dave Hall, Jim Lucas, Zach Payne, Growing Indiana Together, Midwest Hemp Council, R Street Institute, Reason Foundation, and Global Alliance of Cannabis Commerce.

AFP-IN has identified cannabis reform as a legislative priority this session and recognizes its ability to spur economic growth and have a positive impact on Hoosier law enforcement by allowing police to reprioritize their resources on violent crimes.

AFP-IN State Director Josh Webb issued the following statement:

“It is high time the era of cannabis prohibition in Indiana come to an end. Hoosiers know Indiana must change its failed approach to cannabis if we want to increase public safety, protect medically prescribed treatments, and break down barriers for entrepreneurs. Responsible legalization would not only safeguard a smart on crime, soft on taxpayer criminal justice system but will also provide a regulatory framework that would help bring revenue back to Indiana. We look forward to our continued partnership with the public and legislators to create a legal, free, and competitive cannabis marketplace in Indiana.”
