When it comes to marijuana, there is only one presidential candidate who is getting high marks. Will Rand Paul score another “A” from marijuana insiders attending the major cannabis summit taking place in Denver this week? We’ll find out on Tuesday. Senator Paul will be hosting a VIP reception at the Colorado Convention Center during the Cannabis Business Summit. It’s the first time that a presidential candidate has ever held a fundraiser with the cannabis industry, reports The Denver Post.
Taylor West, the deputy director of the National Cannabis Industry Association, said the private “VIP reception” is designed to let marijuana insiders hear from Paul, who supports legislation to legalize medical marijuana and give the pot industry access to banking.
“It’s the first event that we know of that a presidential candidate will be involved in the industry,” she said in an interview. “He’s kind of in a class of his own.” (Denver Post)
Sen. Paul will also be spending time outside of the cannabis summit. Supporters can join his campaign rally at the Choppers Sports Grill or see him at another fundraiser later in the day at the Denver Athletic Club. Send us a tweet or comment below if you spot Rand Paul in Denver!
