WASHINGTON: New Hampshire Senate Candidate Roger Tilton, who first came to national prominence for including a marijuana leaf on campaign posters for his bid for New Hampshire State Senate in 2012, stopped MJBA HQ in Seattle last week to speak with MJ News Network’s David Rheins.
The pro-cannabis politician is back on the campaign trail — and still flying his cannabis banner high. Tilton is running for the same 11th district seat in NH again in 2016, and was in Seattle to promote Pre-Fest: A Joint Fundraiser to Benefit Seattle Hempfest and the Eastward Expansion of Legal Cannabis.
Pre-Fest will be a combination of higher-level reform activism, a joint political and nonprofit fundraiser, a launch party for a new cannabis venture, with dabs, doobies, dinner and entertainment. Organized by Dr. Keith Saunders, a prominent activist and sociologist who sits on the NORML Board of Directors and also serves as Tilton’s campaign manager, the exclusive benefit will take place at the Stables in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle on Aug 17th.
Tilton and Rheins enjoyed a wide-ranging conversation about politics, pot and how New England’s legalization movement compares to the West Coast’s legal cannabis marketplace. Watch the video exclusively on Marijuana Channel One.
