Nevada’s Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol received official endorsements from ten labor unions recently, all listed later in this post.
The announcement came just two weeks after the group announced the endorsement of Culinary Local 226, the largest labor union in the state.
“This is a tremendous show of support from the labor community,” says Joe Brezny, spokesperson for the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, the group behind Nevada’s Question 2.
“Their support demonstrates that the working people of Nevada want to take marijuana out of the criminal market and shift production and sales into regulated, tax-paying businesses.”
“Some powerful individuals and groups are attempting to scare Nevadans into keeping marijuana prohibition in place. The people who care about good jobs, safer communities, and money for schools believe that voting Yes on Question 2 to regulate marijuana is the far more sensible choice,” Brezny continued.
Here is the list of labor unions endorsing Question 2:
Culinary Local 226
International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 720
International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 396
International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 14
International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 631
International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 986
