2020 Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang Promotes Campaign with Marijuana-Centric Apparel
  • Merchandise from Andrew Yang’s campaign combined mathematics and cannabis.
  • Yang has not personally consumed cannabis before.

The Democrats haven’t selected their nomination for a presidential candidate yet, but each individual is looking to set themselves apart in their campaign. Considering what a major issue marijuana legalization is right now, Andrew Yang has already incorporated into his campaign, offering cannabis-themed merchandise to supporters, according to reports from Forbes and Marijuana Moment.

Yang combines his love of mathematics with his cannabis reform support, providing t-shirts with “Math. Money. Marijuana.” for $30, or a bumper sticker that simply says, “Legalize Marijuana.” Though already sold out, his campaign also put out a baseball cap with “Math” on the front and a cannabis leaf on the back.

While Yang has never held public office, one of the main policies he is taking on is drug reform, which includes the legalization of marijuana. However, he has also expressed that he would pardon any drug offenders of non-violent crimes, which he announced would be on April 20th, the unofficial but often celebrated marijuana holiday, after entering office

He explained,

“I would legalize marijuana and I would pardon everyone who’s in jail for a non-violent, drug-related offense. I would pardon them all on April 20, 2021 and I would high five them on their way out of jail.”

He later retracted his remarks, stating that the mass clemency would only apply to cannabis offences, rather than all non-violent drug offenses. Still, his website for the campaign shows that he is in support of decriminalizing opioids as well.

To ensure that there’s no confusion, Yang issued a fundraising email to his list with a pledge:

Last month, while at a campaign event in Oregon, Yang chose to sign a bong, though he was sure to state that he has not personally consumed cannabis.
