Snoop Dogg and Charles Koch Come Together on Topic of Marijuana

The Cannabis Freedom Alliance aims to decriminalize marijuana and build a framework for a legal market.

A recent POLITICO article discussed the Cannabis Freedom Alliance, a group aimed at drug legalization and criminal justice reform. The initiative is the result of an unlikely Zoom meeting involving right-wing billionaire Charles Koch, rapper Snoop Dogg, and Weldon Angelos, an advocate for criminal justice reform. The effort to legalize mariunana has been a left-leaning topic, but as Angelos put it, “We can’t cut with one scissor blade. We need Republicans in order to pass [a legalization bill].

Having served a 55-year sentence for drug trafficking, Weldon is now the founder of the Cannabis Freedom Alliance. He networked with Koch in an effort to flip “10 to 12 Republican senators” to pass a legalizing marijuana bill at the federal level. The coalition will advocate for removing penalties for marijuana offenses, and help usher sellers from the illicit market to a regulated, legal market. It will also establish a regulatory framework that encourages free markets and low tax rates.
