State Democratic Parties Tweet About Marijuana

Published

on

Over the course of the past week, several state Democratic Party organizations have used their official Twitter accounts to push for marijuana law reforms.

On Monday, the Democratic Party of New Mexico tweeted in support of a proposal to decriminalize cannabis in Albuquerque.

The same day, the Kentucky Democratic Party live-tweeted a state House hearing on a medical cannabis bill, quoting its supportive caucus members.

On Wednesday, the West Virginia Democratic Party took to Twitter to build support for pending legislation to expand the state’s new medical cannabis industry.

And on Thursday, the Tennessee Democratic Party tweeted a call to action in support of a bill to allow medical marijuana.

The series of tweets from the party organs comes a little over a week after California Democrats approved several far-reaching cannabis reform planks in their 2018 party platform.

In 2016, several state Democratic Party organizations included cannabis planks in their platforms, as did the Democratic National Committee.

A number of major Democratic candidates for key offices in several states such as governor and attorney general are campaigning on marijuana law reform this year.
