Legislative Analyst ~ The Marijuana Policy Project

The Marijuana Policy Project is seeking a Legislative Analyst to work in MPP’s State Policies Department in Washington, D.C. This position is an excellent opportunity to play an integral role in a fast-paced, well-respected advocacy organization.

The overarching goal of the Legislative Analyst is to help MPP pass state-level bills to (a) permit the use of medical marijuana by patients whose doctors recommend its use; (b) reduce penalties for marijuana offenses, such as decriminalizing marijuana possession; and (c) tax and regulate marijuana similarly to alcohol.

QUALIFICATIONS

A law degree is strongly preferred. In addition, candidates should have exceptional oral communication skills, flawless writing, an understanding of public policy, and a professional appearance. Candidates should also be highly organized, self-motivated, and able to accomplish a defined and ambitious set of goals.

RESPONSIBILITIES

The Legislative Analyst is in charge of monitoring and influencing marijuana-related bills in approximately 17 state legislatures. (MPP’s State Policies Department includes two other Legislative Analysts who cover the other two-thirds of the country.) To this end, the Legislative Analyst will:

  • Act as the first point of contact and coordinate with advocates in each assigned state.
  • Use an online legislative monitoring system to determine which bills are relevant to marijuana policy in each assigned state.
  • Write legislative alerts to MPP’s email subscribers from state to state, updating them on the status of legislation and asking them to email pre-written letters to their state legislators and governors.
  • Maintain MPP’s state Web pages with updated legislative information, pre-written letters for constituents to send to their state legislators, “tell a friend” messages, pre-written letters-to-the-editor, and relevant news articles. The Legislative Analyst is responsible for all of this writing.
  • Assist the Director of State Policies with legislative research and analysis and any other functions to assist in the passage of state legislation, including identifying and preparing witnesses for legislative testimony and lobbying; coordinating pressure tactics such as mailings, grassroots phone calls and emails, and radio ads; and communicating with state legislators and lobbyists.
  • Prepare and file lobbying expense reports.
  • If the candidate is an attorney, perform occasional legal work such as reviewing contracts and drafting legislation.

The Legislative Analyst reports to MPP’s Director of State Policies (who is based in Los Angeles), who in turn reports to MPP’s Executive Director (who is based in D.C.).

COMPENSATION

The first-year salary for this position is $40,000, plus full health insurance and an optional retirement plan.

TO APPLY

To apply, please follow MPP’s application instructions (see www.mpp.org/jobs). Phone interviews will take place during the second half of February, and in-person interviews will take place in MPP’s D.C. headquarters during the first half of March. MPP intends to decide on the final candidate by the middle of March (with the starting date being flexible).

Thank you for your interest in MPP.
