In 2020, young people played a crucial role in sending President Biden and Vice President Harris to the White House. In 2022, young people were crucial to defeating prohibitionist politicians like Dr. Oz in Pennsylvania. So it only makes sense that young people should be represented at all levels of our government.
Right now, there aren’t many roles and opportunities specifically for young people to engage in our representative democracy. That limits their ability to help shape the policies that affect them most—including cannabis policy. Young people need a seat at the table, which is exactly why we’re teaming up with Blue Future to call on Congress and the Biden-Harris administration to take action.
Add your name today to tell Congress and the Biden-Harris administration to create an Office of Young Americans, establish youth-specific positions in existing administrative roles, and create a Young Americans Advisory Council. These actions will give young people the roles and opportunities they need to make their voices heard.
It’s the youth who will have to live with the consequences of action—or inaction—for the rest of their lives. Young people deserve a seat at the table to help make those decisions.
If Congress and the White House take these steps to ensure that young people’s concerns and perspectives are taken into account, we know they’ll help make the right calls when it comes to cannabis policy.
Join us by adding your name to the petition and calling on the Biden-Harris administration and Congress to prioritize the voices of young people in cannabis policy and beyond.
Thank you for supporting youth engagement in politics and for joining us in this historic fight.
P.S. Our BOWL PAC activist community is growing rapidly! Will you chip in $5 a month or more to support our cause? Together, we can win legalization.
