Carlos Curbelo to Help Advocate for Weed
Former FL Republican Congressman Carlos Curbelo has joined the Executive Team of the Cannabis Trade Federation (CTF), a nonprofit for cannabis education and advocacy in public policy, where he will serve as a strategic advisor to the group. “During my time in Congress, I worked closely with the Cannabis Trade Federation ... In my home state of Florida, 71 percent voted in favor of legalizing medical cannabis, and voters in 33 states and D.C. have also decided to legalize cannabis in some capacity. This is a states’ rights issue,” Curbelo said. “I am joining CTF’s team because I know that they are the most effective cannabis industry lobby and that they have the resources, talent, and professional acumen needed to pass game-changing reform at the federal level." He has been busy post-Congress. Curbelo has joined the advisory board of the Millennial Action Project; the board of advisors for Alliance for Market Solutions; joined Telemundo and MSNBC as a Contributor; and was named a Spring 2019 Fellow at the Harvard Institute of Politics.
