Juul top donor to California Democratic convention

I got the following email from a friend at the convention:

"I was at the convention yesterday (May 31) and someone mentioned to me that Juul was one of the top contributors. I did notice that other contributors included some cannabis companies like Weedmap, but JUUL was at the top of the list."

I suppose Juul gave all that money as part of their ongoing effort to protect public health.



All this rhetoric about doing away with corporate donors and buying influence and yet there's no transparent list of who's contributing what to whom? Shameless. Public health over profiteering needs full tilt accountability. No matter what party or platform. Jaysus.https://www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-ca-california-democrats-chairs-r...


Juul's support was controversal at the convention.  KPIX and the SF Chronicle did stories.
