The Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), the largest organization in the United States with the sole purpose of cannabis law reform has added three new members to its board of directors. Founded in 1995 the organization has been highly effective in helping spur changes to marijuana law at the state level.

“MPP is picking up steam, and momentum is building heading into the midterm elections and upcoming legislative sessions,” said MPP executive director Steve Hawkins in a press release. “We are pleased to welcome three outstanding new members to our board of directors.”

“They bring a diverse and solid understanding of marijuana policy, the cannabis industry, and the politics and advocacy efforts that surround them,” said Hawkins, who joined MPP in August. “They have proven track records of leadership and innovation in their fields, and I have no doubt they will be assets to the organization.”

Former Justice Department prosecutor and Artemis Holdings Group founder Sheri Orlowitz will be joining the board of directors as well as Pueblo County commissioner and former Colorado House of Representatives leader Sal Pace.

“MPP has done more to bring about the end of marijuana prohibition than any other organization, and I am humbled to be joining its board of directors,” said Pace. Thanks to MPP’s state-by-state victories and its efforts in Congress, our country is on the precipice of ending federal cannabis prohibition.”

Also joining the board is Les Szabo, who is the director of constructive capital at Dr. Bronner’s. Bronner’s is the top-selling natural soap brand in North America, a leader in environmental sustainability, and a supporter of hemp policy reform in the United States.

In addition to serving on MPP’s board of directors, Pace will also serve as senior policy advisor.
