Andrew DeAngelo Talks about Cannabis Industry, Challenges, Advances, and his New Playboy Column. Playboy, as an early advocate for cannabis rights, supported the National Organization for the Regulation of Marijuana Laws (NORML) for years. Playboy writers consistently produced authoritative articles about the failed war on drugs, benefits of weed, and the wisdom of its legalization. Playboy Foundation’s annual donation of $100,000 to NORML for a full decade launched the advocacy group - under the leadership of Keith Stroup - to become the nation’s leader in the fight against marijuana prohibition and advocacy for just laws and the fair treatment of cannabis users. Playboy’s mission has not changed from its original role that began over six decades ago.

With the 2020 presidential elections finally decided, cannabis fans of all political persuasions have a lot to be happy about, especially in five states where legalization measures passed with flying colors.
And, with the Democratic administration of President-elect Joe Biden set to take over, we can all share a sigh of relief. Though we must hold their feet to the fire to honor their promise to decriminalize cannabis and undertake drug policy reform. Matthew Schweich, deputy director of the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) said that support for legal marijuana has only increased over the years. He pointed to the five marijuana ballot measures that passed in Arizona, Mississippi, Montana, New Jersey, and South Dakota.
