Cannabis Open Carry Walks

An Interview with Jody Ladd, COCW Cannabis Activist

Advocacy groups and activists have had an important influence on the evolving perception of #cannabis in #Texas, and the global movement to full legalization. With a dozen cannabis-related bills and resolutions filed for the 2019 Texas legislative session, Cannabis Open Carry Walks (COCW) group and members like Jody Ladd, continue to apply pressure on elected officials for change.

“We came down to Austin today just to show a presence,” Jody Ladd said. “There’s a lot of people behind the legalization of cannabis and supporting some of the bills that’s come out.” (Quillin & Mueller, 2019)

On any given weekend COCW can be seen answering the call to action from Austin, TX to Australia carrying signs, flags, banners, and handing out information to people stopped at stop lights and street corners! In just under a year, COCW and its boots to the ground advocacy have had an undeniable impact on Texas cannabis legalization.
