At Dutchie, our commitment goes beyond simply providing our services. We're devoted to creating a pro-cannabis business regulatory environment that safeguards the industry’s interests. This commitment has led us to forge a partnership with the U.S. Cannabis Council, the voice of America's regulated cannabis industry, and now, we extend an invitation to you. Join us as we grow "Legalize America," the nation's first-ever Super Political Action Committee (Super PAC) centered on cannabis reform.
As a Super PAC Legalize America possesses the power to raise and spend funds to independently fuel campaigns that champion or challenge political candidates, aiming to advance favorable policies for our industry. By generating scorecards evaluating elected officials' stance on cannabis-related issues, endorsing pro-cannabis candidates, and initiating targeted independent expenditure campaigns, Legalize America provides a robust platform to amplify our industry's voice in the political arena.
Our objectives with Legalize America are clear and strategic. At the forefront is advocating for the passage of the SAFE Banking Act. This key legislation protects financial institutions offering traditional banking services to state-legal cannabis businesses from being penalized by federal banking regulators. In essence, it would pave the way for your business to access loans, merchant services, and other financial resources that are currently unavailable to the cannabis industry.
Further, we're appealing to the Biden administration for a significant policy change - reclassification of cannabis as a Schedule III controlled substance, or entirely descheduling it under U.S. law. This shift would enable state-regulated cannabis businesses like yours to deduct business expenses from federal taxes, easing your financial burdens.
Beyond these legislative pursuits, Legalize America is advocating for social justice measures, such as the expungement of records for non-violent cannabis offenses, ensuring that the benefits of legalization are universally accessible.
To bolster our reform efforts and secure widespread support, Legalize America is partnering with respected public figures and reputable brands. With their backing, we're confident in our ability to drive significant reform and raise the necessary funds.
By standing with Legalize America, you're not just supporting a cause, but actively shaping the future of the cannabis industry. We invite you to contribute your strength to our collective effort, guiding the industry towards a more inclusive, legalized, and prosperous future. Join us in making history, one reform at a time.
