Rest in Peace, Renny Cushing

Prime ATC joins countless Granite Staters and others in mourning the passing of Renny Cushing, one of New Hampshire’s leading advocates for cannabis policy reform. As a longtime state representative, Cushing was a cheerful warrior who did everything under his power to turn the tide against cannabis prohibition. We are deeply saddened by this loss, and our thoughts are with his family during this difficult time.

Rep. Cushing’s many contributions to cannabis policy are detailed in this Facebook post. Additionally, you can read more about his long, impressive career as an activist and state legislator in this article.
