Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) and Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) will share the stage at the International Cannabis Business Conference in San Francisco Feb. 13-14.
Rohrabacher will discuss his battle to stop the federal government continuing to shut down California dispensaries.
“I co-authored the Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment to stop overzealous federal weed warriors from raiding law-abiding medical marijuana shops,” he said, “but we can’t stop there.”
Blumenauer intends to tell the crowd that full legalization has been successful in his state of Oregon and that California stands to benefit from an overhaul of the state’s pot laws.
“In Oregon, fewer people are being arrested for minor marijuana offenses, tax money is being collected, and police are more focused on stopping violent criminals,” Blumenauer said. “California can have that, too. Legalization works.”
