CALL YOU LEGISLATOR AND LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!
For decades the African-American Community was the face of the war on drugs.
The same government that locked up black and brown men and women; now seek to profit from the legal sale of Marijuana in those same communities, while also excluding US from ownership.
#2020 is an election year. Let your legislator know—YOU ARE WATCHING THESE BILLS AND THEIR VOTE. YOU WILL NOT BE SILENT.
Call the Washington State Legislative HOTLINE at 1-800-562-6000 (TTY for Hearing Impaired 800.833.6388).
Callers to the Hotline can leave a brief message for their district legislators or for the Governor.

Script: Dear Representative/Senator: __________________. I’m calling on behalf of Black Excellence in Cannabis to voice my opposition to House Bills 2263 /2361 (or Senate Bills SB 6085/ SB 6393). These bills are designed to disenfranchise Black Washingtonians, while unjustly enriching the WHITE 1% by allowing outside investors and additional regulation into the legal cannabis trade. We demand social equity and restorative justice in the WA cannabis industry. We need black-owners, less regulation, and more compliance education for legal marijuana businesses in Washington State. Please vote NO on these bills.
Please also share the information above with your networks and let’s work together to create the progressive and inclusive cannabis industry that We all deserve.
Black Excellence in Cannabis

They need to allow for all Washington State residents left behind to get licensed and clean up the WSLCB first, especially from the minority communities most harmed and least represented at the table…
