MPP is happy to announce that Troy Dayton will be joining our board of directors later this month! He will serve a three-year term, during which time he will help guide the overall direction of the organization. Troy will be replacing Richard Miller, Ph.D., who has served since 2010 and done an outstanding job.
Troy Dayton was one of MPP's first volunteers when MPP was founded in 1995. Since then, he has raised over $1 million to support MPP's work --- which is the second-largest sum of money that anyone has raised for MPP.
He also co-founded Students for Sensible Drug Policy and the National Cannabis Industry Association. And Troy made national headlines when he organized religious leaders to endorse MPP's ballot initiative to end marijuana prohibition in Nevada.
Troy is currently the CEO of The ArcView Group, which was the focus of a recent cover story in "Fortune" magazine. He is quoted often in major media outlets on the topic of marijuana legalization.
The final results showed that Troy secured over 75% of the popular vote from MPP's members, with Michael Kirshner (16.8%) and Jason Fien (7.1%) placing second and third in the voting.
