The 117th Congress is shaping up to be the year for cannabis reform. As of April 2021, 47 states, four U.S. territories and the District of Columbia have legalized medical cannabis, recreational cannabis or both. Many of these efforts can be contributed to Steve Fox, a true pioneer of the legalization movement. Fox, managing partner of VS Strategies, and godfather of the industry, paved the path for nationwide legalization efforts and was instrumental in cannabis reform throughout the country for decades. He was one of the first to politically advocate on behalf of medical and recreational cannabis legalization, advance decriminalization measures and promote reform and social justice. As an educator and leader, Fox will be remembered for his wisdom, knowledge and kindness, and his voice, perspective and presence will be dearly missed.
