July 13 Lunch and Learn: Legalized Marijuana and the WV Budget

Lunch and Learn – This Wednesday

Several states will vote this November on whether or not to legalize marijuana. If West Virginia passed such a measure, what would it mean for the state’s budget? Find out on Wednesday at our next Lunch and Learn on July 13 from 11:30AM – 1:00PM at the West Virginia Covenant House, 600 Shrewsbury Street in Charleston.

Bring your lunch and join in on the conversation!

Keep West Virginia Payday Loan Free!

Along with 14 other states, West Virginia bans payday loans. Check out this great article from our colleagues in New York on the great benefits these states have enjoyed because high-interest loans are outlawed. New Yorkers alone save $790 million in payday loan fees each year.

Help keep these predatory lenders out of West Virginia by calling on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to close all loopholes in its proposed rule. Go here to add your voice to the thousands of others from across the country.
