California: New Political Committees Formed In Support Of Marijuana Legalization

CaliforniansforSensibleReform[logo]

Californians for Sensible Reform (CSR), a new political organization founded by Weedmaps entrepreneur Justin Hartfield in support of common-sense fixes to California's marijuana laws, on Monday announced the formation of a new general-purpose ballot measure committee ("Californians for Sensible Reform") and a candidate political action committee ("Californians for Sensible Reform PAC").

In addition, the group announced the first $1 million contribution from Weedmaps Media, LLC, to the new ballot-measure committee -- dedicated to supporting politically-viable, consensus-supported ballot measures in 2016 -- pledged additional support for political candidates with pro-decriminalization voting records, and called on other members of this rapidly maturing industry to make similar commitments.

"Decriminalization of adult marijuana use in California is bigger than any business -- it's a generational cause and an economic imperative," said Justin Hartfield, founder of CSR and CEO/Founder of Weedmaps Media, LLC. "And, as California's Attorney General has indicated, there's 'certain inevitability about it' -- especially since California is now falling behind other states."
