Do Not Underestimate Nancy Mace
An Interview on Cannabis With the Congresswoman
I know one thing for certain after talking to Congresswoman Nancy Mace: She is a badass. I knew she was tough, you can’t not be tough when you are the first woman to ever graduate the Citadel, a military university in the South. But, it wasn’t until I had the chance to interview her and hear her resolve and commitment to cannabis reform that I appreciated her strong will.
Here is what I learned from her:
Her own internal polling of conservatives in South Carolina shows that only a single digit percentage of Republicans in her home state oppose cannabis. She feels so strongly about the polling numbers that she is telling all her Congressional colleagues that they too should poll their constituents and they will be really surprised by what they find.
Congresswoman Mace has a clear strategy and plan for her States Reform Act bill. She believes that the House of Representatives will first pass the MORE Act again and it will fail in the Senate. Then Schumer will take up his bill and it will fail in the Senate. And then she will move on her bill.
Several of her Republican colleagues have told her that once their primaries are over, they will co-sponsor her bill.
She is not opposed to breaking up her bill, as long as true reform is not delayed.
WNBA star Britnney Griner is a top issue for her and she believes that the U.S. should absolutely fight to bring her home and that she will not let Griner be forgotten.
If the Republicans win the House in November, Congresswoman Mace believes that she is in line to be named a committee chair, and that she will use that post to fight for cannabis reform.
She wants this to be a bipartisan issue and is taking this into account with a clear cut strategy to get cannabis reform done.
Investors and advocates of cannabis reform should follow and support Congresswoman Mace. I believe that if we want Federal illegality to change we need to support those who are making it a tier one issue like Gary Chambers and Nancy Mace.
But one thing is clear to me now. Nancy Mace is on a mission and people would do well not to underestimate her.
I hope you enjoy the interview:
