Business apparently is good for the Marijuana Policy Project, the nation’s largest pot lobby: After 19 years of existence, it announced today that it has bought office space in Washington, D.C., just two miles north of the White House.
Rob Kampia, the group’s executive director, said the group is soliciting donations to help pay its $664,000 mortgage. The office space is a 4,040-square-foot suite that takes up nearly the entire first floor of a residential building.
Kampia said there’s a good reason to contribute: You’ll be helping to end marijuana prohibition.
With its new property, the group can get down to the official business of Washington: wooing elected officials.
Kampia said a new rooftop deck will be used to hold receptions for members of Congress, with the first one planned for March 11.
