The Alliance for Sensible Markets is a non-profit coalition of business and advocacy leaders committed to a thriving, just, and sustainable legal cannabis industry.
In 1996 Adam launched the nation’s first publication devoted to coverage of national and international drug policy reform. In 1998 he launched the Higher Education Act Reform Campaign, the first effort to successfully roll back federal drug war legislation in the US, winning back the right to financial aid for students with prior drug convictions. Out of that effort, he and others launched Students for Sensible Drug Policy, now a UN-recognized NGO active in 40+ states and more than 30 countries.
In the years since, Adam has founded or helped launch numerous successful organizations and campaigns including the Oregon Bus Project, the Vote By Mail Project, The League of Young Voters, and the Craft Cannabis Alliance. His writing on cannabis and drug policy has appeared in dozens of print and online publications.
