Campaigning can get very expensive and thats is also true for marijuana legalization campaigns. But Colorado is getting a little help. Kevin Bronner, a California businessman, is cutting a check to Colorado’s campaign for the amount of $50,000. Bronner is well known for big donations towards the marijuana legalization efforts.
Bronner owns a natural soaps company called Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps. He plans to make the donation in Denver. Bronner says he wants to see pot legalized because his company imports 20 tons of hemp-seed oil each year from Canada Hemp cannot be grown legally in this country, and Bronner says legalization could save his company money. Bronner also gave $75,000 to a legalization effort two years ago in California. His company is located in Escondido.
Gov. John Hickenlooper, of Colorado, signed into law an industrial pilot project on Monday. But that pilot is aimed at soil remediation, not commercial hemp production.
