Washington Town Hall Meetings to Save Medical Cannabis


Calling All Medical Cannabis Patients and Supporters!


Tired of making the trek to Olympia to make your voice heard? Speak with Senators and Representatives directly at a Town Hall Meeting near you instead!

Each year, legislators typically report back to constituents in their home districts by hosting a mid-session Town Hall Meeting. Between now and March 19th, lawmakers will be hosting these community discussions either in person or via conference call.


Town hall meetings are a great opportunity to make sure elected officials are aware of issues that hit closer to home, including medical cannabis. Representative democracy only works when those we elect to take office reflect the views of ordinary citizens. But it’s up to YOU to make sure lawmakers understand your point of view, so they can represent you appropriately when they return to Olympia!

It’s never been easier to find a Town Hall Meeting near you --
