2016 Election: The Cannabis Vote

Which candidate will be the first to pitch the “cannabis vote?”


Both Clinton and Trump have had trouble wooing Black Lives Matter voters, so showing that they care about the disproportionate arrest of millions of African Americans for marijuana possession could help.

When it comes to older voters, polls show that many seniors do embrace medical marijuana, though marijuana legalization is not on their agenda. In states like Florida, Arkansas and Missouri, where medical marijuana is looking to be legalized, and Montana, where medical laws would be expanded, a candidate could appeal to retired voters by supporting the measures.

Millennials are far and away the target market for marijuana campaigns, with 71% in favor of ending prohibition – compared with 58% nationally. So in states proposing full legalization like Arizona, California, Massachusetts, Maine and Nevada, showing support for marijuana reform could bolster a candidate’s numbers by a few points.

It is an interesting take on the election. Find the complete, original post HERE.
