Massachusetts Campus Coordinator
Austin Davis joined SSDP to work as our Massachusetts Campus Coordinator. Based in Boston, Austin will grow SSDP’s presence in Massachusetts and engage students in the 2016 election to pass a recreational cannabis initiative. She graduated from Miami University (OH) in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in History and Russian, Eastern European, & Eurasian Studies. For her senior History Capstone paper, Austin dove into the historical prohibition of cannabis in America compared with its historical consumption, focusing on the damage that the War on Drugs has wrecked both domestically and internationally. This led to an internship with the Colorado Governor’s Office of Marijuana Coordination where she provided comprehensive cannabis research support.
Austin is an advocate for comprehensive medical cannabis research, regulation, and consumption and is excited to work with SSDP.
