Lodi hosts prevention prohibitionist Ben Cort – As legalization looms, the Republicans and coalition groups are taking this opportunity to zoom information into Wisconsin. Not every “industry expert” brought into Wisconsin by organizations concerned about marijuana legalization are friendly. The battle over information is just starting.
Lots of organizations concerned about youth prevention and use have been hosting zoom events and presentations. This is a perfect opportunity for our leaders in the those local communities to reach out to others using the links and Fact Sheets.
A local volunteer from the Lodi area recently contacted us and pointed out this event. It is being presented by The Lodi Community Action Team. According to The Lodi Community Action Team (LCAT) website: it “works to create an environment to prevent youth substance use through education, environmental prevention strategies and connections with caring adults. Through community, we work to empower youth to live a healthy lifestyle.”
LCAT brings Ben Cort to Wisconsin
Prevention Prohibitionist Ben Cort focuses on marijuana education and consulting. He is in the substance use disorder treatment field. Additionally, in 2012 Cort joined the opposition campaign for Amendment 64. This was the constitutional amendment that would ultimately allow for the commercialization of marijuana in Colorado.
The website for Cort also states that Ben has remained active in the discussion around marijuana. Additionally, he claims to have assisted several states in their efforts to hold back Big Marijuana.
The Wisconsin Cannabis Activist Volunteer had this to say:
This is happening in my community. Seems like a pretty one sided event. Could use some more like minded people speaking up against this prohibitionist.
