RISE Dispensaries a rapidly growing cannabis retail chain owned by Green Thumb Industries Inc. ("Green Thumb") (CSE: GTII) (OTCQX: GTBIF), today announced that RISE Dispensaries will serve as a premier sponsor of HeadCount's Cannabis Voter Project, which aims to register and inform voters who support cannabis policy reform. Ahead of this year's midterm elections, HeadCount and RISE Dispensaries are teaming up to encourage voters to "Roll Up to the Polls" through Cannabis Voter Project resources now available at all RISE-branded locations and online at www.headcount.orgrise .

"There are massive inconsistencies in cannabis policy across America created by long-standing political figures," said Green Thumb Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Ben Kovler. "We are proud to partner with HeadCount and the Cannabis Voter Project to increase voter registration. The best way to create change is to drive more people to vote, which is exactly the mission of this partnership."

HeadCount is a nonprofit, non-partisan voter engagement organization that encourages voter registration and promotes participation in democracy. The organization has partnered with leading festivals and artists including Lollapalooza, Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Dead & Company and more to encourage civic engagement.

In 2018, HeadCount launched the Cannabis Voter Project to register and turn out voters interested in cannabis policy, providing online voter registration and an interactive online map of where elected officials stand on cannabis in all 50 states . Leading up to the midterm elections this year, Cannabis Voter Project's "Roll Up to the Polls" campaign further encourages voters to turn out and exert their power at the ballot box.

"HeadCount is excited to launch our partnership with RISE Dispensaries in time for the midterm elections," said Sam D'Arcangelo, Director of HeadCount's Cannabis Voter Project. "The leaders we elect decide how cannabis is treated at the federal, state and local level, so it's important for the cannabis community to be an active and informed voting bloc. Cannabis Voter Project is grateful to have RISE's support and we look forward to helping their customers make their voices heard at the polls."
