CHICAGO and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — RISE Dispensaries, a rapidly growing cannabis retail chain owned by Green Thumb Industries Inc. (“Green Thumb”) (CSE: GTII) (OTCQX: GTBIF), today announced that RISE Dispensaries will serve as a premier sponsor of HeadCount’s Cannabis Voter Project, which aims to register and inform voters who support cannabis policy reform. Ahead of this year’s midterm elections, HeadCount and RISE Dispensaries are teaming up to encourage voters to “Roll Up to the Polls” through Cannabis Voter Project resources now available at all RISE-branded locations and online at www.headcount.org/rise.
“There are massive inconsistencies in cannabis policy across America created by long-standing political figures,” said Green Thumb Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Ben Kovler. “We are proud to partner with HeadCount and the Cannabis Voter Project to increase voter registration. The best way to create change is to drive more people to vote, which is exactly the mission of this partnership.”
HeadCount is a nonprofit, non-partisan voter engagement organization that encourages voter registration and promotes participation in democracy. The organization has partnered with leading festivals and artists including Lollapalooza, Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Dead & Company and more to encourage civic engagement.
