Roger Stone announced the formation of the United States Cannabis Coalition (USCC) on Friday during the Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo in New York. As noted by Business Insider, the USCC is registered with the IRS as a section 527 nonprofit, the same tax-exempt status that applies to political action committees.

“I am going to be working with a coalition of Republicans and Democrats, progressives and libertarians, liberals, and conservatives to persuade the president to keep his campaign pledge,” says Stone, “and to remind the president that he took a strong and forthright position on this issue in the election.”
