Louisiana needs a new approach to cannabis.
Our state’s current laws on the books do more harm than good—putting hundreds of thousands of Louisianans behind bars for offenses that are not a true threat to public safety. This distracts law enforcement from tackling true, public safety concerns that negatively impact our communities.
Legalization will not only provide a smart on crime, soft on taxpayers approach to our justice system, but will also ensure a framework that creates a level playing field for entrepreneurs and business owners.
Rep. Richard Nelson’s bill, House Bill 699, will accomplish these things.
Urge your legislators to support Rep. Nelson’s proposal that will improve public safety in our communities and further the economic recovery by supporting HB 699!
