UPDATE 2: It's 6:15p ET and I'm going to go ahead and sign off. Thank you to everyone who asked questions, and I apologize if I didn't get to yours.
UPDATE: It's 5p ET and I will be wrapping up soon. I'll be responding to a few more questions that have already been posted, but not answering any new questions. Thank you everyone!
I am the director of communications for the Marijuana Policy Project — https://www.mpp.org — which has organized several successful efforts to legalize and regulate marijuana for medical and broader adult use. MPP lobbies in state legislatures and Congress, supports state and local ballot initiatives, and educates the public about cannabis and the benefits of ending prohibition. 2016 was a historic year for the reform movement, and we are now working to defend those victories and continue making progress at the state and federal levels. I am also a co-author of Marijuana Is Safer: So why are we driving people to drink?
