Campaigns around the country have worked hard in the last year or two to get initiatives on the ballot in nine different states across America. This November’s election could turn out to be a landmark date in the marijuana reform movement if each and every initiative were to pass. Of course, after all the money that has been sunk into these campaigns so far, most of them are starting to run dry on funding for essential marketing during the final week of the campaigns.
Luckily for them, one company has decided to do what they could to come to the rescue. MassRoots is a well-known social media network for marijuana users across the nation. It is used to connect with patients, as well as dispensaries in states where medical and recreational cannabis are legalized. Clearly they would have a lot to gain if legalization were to spread to 9 more states – 5 of which are voting on adult use cannabis initiatives.
“In public, most marijuana companies talk a big game about supporting cannabis legalization but never do anything to actually help. Isaac Dietrich and MassRoots are the complete opposite – they have quietly taken substantial action to help put several key initiatives over the finish line,” stated Marijuana Policy Project Executive Director Rob Kampia. “On behalf of the millions of marijuana legalization supporters across the country, I’d like to thank MassRoots for having a significant impact in making these legalization initiatives pass.”
Over the month of October, MassRoots managed to fundraise an additional $250,000 with the sole intention of donating it to the various groups trying to legalize cannabis throughout the country. While it doesn’t sound surprising, they are one of few companies who has made the effort to do their part to help not only the legalization process in their home state, but also throughout the rest of the country as well.
“I first met Isaac Dietrich three years ago when MassRoots had about 5,000 users and was pitching the Arcview’s investor group for the first time. It is my goal at Arcview to inspire activism from legal cannabis entrepreneurs. No adult should be punished for this plant and it warms my heart to see MassRoots advocating so fiercely for the freedom and liberty of their customers,” stated Arcview Group CEO Troy Dayton. “Next Tuesday could mark the beginning of the end for marijuana prohibition. MassRoots is earning its place in the history books with its bold support for legalization.”
It’s nice to see a successful company doing what they can in order to help other states embrace the legal cannabis industry. While they are looking at the profits that their company stands to gain with this expansion to the industry, they are still advocates who worked hard to get where they are. Now they are pushing the Get-Out-The-Vote campaign, encouraging people living in states with a marijuana initiative on the ballot to get out and vote this year. With less than a week to go, we’re all getting anxious – and soon we will see how things work out for the 9 states voting on legalization this year.
