This Silicon Valley Congressman Won’t Stop Tweeting About Marijuana

It can feel like attorney general Jeff Sessions launches a new pronged attack against cannabis on a weekly basis. Just last month Sessions again hinted at a possible crackdown of state marijuana policies from federal agencies, continuing his streak of stoking fears within the industry.

As it were, another high-profile national political figure can’t stop reminding the public about marijuana. But whereas Sessions perpetuates these scare tactics regarding marijuana, congressman Ro Khanna won’t stop tweeting about the positive benefits of legalizing cannabis at the federal level.

Khanna is the U.S. Representative for California’s 17th congressional district, which is in the heart of Silicon Valley. As you can assume, Khanna’s is an influent political seat, but that doesn’t mean he is necessarily influenced by the tech power surrounding his position. He is one of only six Congress members who doesn’t accept campaign contributions from Political Actions Committees (PACs) or corporations.

While he’s far from the lone political figure within California who supports cannabis legalization, Khanna stands out for his consistent interest of raising awareness. The current state of the cannabis industry is a huge economic boon and a progressive work environment than it was even five years ago. Khanna’s ongoing support underscores the efforts of activists throughout the country.

Just within the past month he’s made at least seven calls to action regarding marijuana legalization or policy reform on his social media platforms.

So just as we pay attention to when a suspiciously forgetful Keebler Elf cries wolf, we should also give merit when positive actionable work is being done on marijuana’s behalf. Keep tweeting, Rep. Ro Khanna, for our sake and yours.
