Adam is the founder of the Alliance for Sensible Markets. He is also the founder of the Craft Cannabis Alliance, a trade group dedicated to defining and expanding markets for Oregon’s locally owned, values- driven cannabis businesses. In 2019, Adam and his members passed the country’s first law preparing a state (OR) for interstate commerce.

When Congress banned financial aid to students with drug convictions in 1998, Adam organized campuses across the country in the first-ever successful effort to roll back federal drug war legislation in the US. The Higher Education Act reform campaign and Adam’s leadership were instrumental to the launch of Students for Sensible Drug Policy, now a drug policy reform powerhouse and leadership incubator with active chapters in over 40 US states and more than 30 countries.

In 2005 he launched the Vote by Mail project, expanding mail-in ballot access in several states and winning full vote-by-mail elections in Colorado in just four years. As a founding board member of the Oregon Bus Project and the League of Young Voters Education Fund, he helped activate networks of young organizers to get out the vote in communities across the country.

Adam lives in Portland, Oregon, where he recently served on the city’s Cannabis Social Equity Grant selection committee. His writing on drug policy has appeared in dozens of print and online publications, and he can be heard weekly as a regular on the podcast Marijuana Tomorrow.
