Cannabis legalization has always been intertwined with economic justice. After all, its prohibition is continuously weaponized to target already marginalized communities and further existing disparities.
From 1979 to 2020, average worker pay grew less than 18% against a 1,209% surge in CEO compensation, making the need for action evident. We believe this inequality is more than an economic issue; it’s a moral one. Without legislative intervention, the system is only going to keep serving top earners.
At BOWL PAC, we stand with progressive allies like Patriotic Millionaires in championing the Curtailing Executive Overcompensation (CEO) Act. This legislation would lead to better profit distribution. Join us by sending a letter to your representatives today!
Sources project that the cannabis industry will generate $85 billion by 2030. It is crucial that profits are distributed to flip the economic patterns from decades of prohibition. Now is the moment to ensure these profits will be widespread, not just hoarded by CEOs.
The effects of prohibition impact every sector of society. From blocked job opportunities due to past convictions to drug testing to gaping wage differences within companies, the economic effects are evident. We know cannabis legalization is not just good policy; it’s a strong catalyst for economic change.
With all eyes on the growing cannabis sector, we’re at a crossroads— we can either repeat the errors of the past or choose a path to more financial equity. Writing to your legislators in support of the CEO Act is a pivotal step against financial injustices course-correcting to meaningful reform.
Let’s join forces to bring economic and cannabis justice to the forefront of congress.
P.S. Our BOWL PAC activist community continues to grow rapidly. As we work to bring our message of cannabis legalization to every voter, we need the resources to consolidate, organize, and amplify. Will you chip in $5 a month or more to support our cause? Together, we will better organize and win legalization.
