Pro-Legalization PAC in Nevada Sees Contributions Spike

By:

A pro-legalization political action committee in Nevada, the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, raised more than $100,000 earlier this month, according to a June 22, 2016, article at ReviewJournal.com.

The PAC supports the Initiative to Regulate and Tax Marijuana, which will appear on the Nevada ballot in November. If voters affirm the initiative, Nevadans 21 years of age and older will be able to use marijuana recreationally.

The Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol had raised $285,500 this year through June 11, 2016. More than half of the money was contributed June 7-9 from marijuana companies in Nevada, including Terra Tech Corp., Greenmart Of Nevada, Medical Marijuana of Las Vegas and Paradise Wellness Center, ReviewJournal.com reported.

While the contributions look good, Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech Corp., said, “It’s going to take a lot more money than that.”

Peterson also said he will continue to push for legalization, and his company will increase contributions to the PAC.
