List of Senators And Congressmen Supporting The US Marijuana Legalization

Published

on

The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) recently unleashed its 2016 congressional scorecard on the cannabis policy in which 20 US politicians and two senators obtained an ‘A’ grade showing that the members have publicly declared their support for legalization of marijuana.

In addition to the list of members in support of the marijuana legalization, over 254 congressmen and senators in the US support the policies related to the decriminalization of marijuana or allow marijuana for medical use. On top of that, other 32 representatives and 22 senators have openly declared support for individual states to set up their own marijuana policies without Federal hindrance.

The politicians supporting the cannabis laws argue that making the weed available to the adults has a huge benefit to the individualized states economy and the entire country of United States. For instance, the states will collect revenues from the marijuana business once it’s legalized. In 2015 alone, Colorado generated over $135 million in taxes. The revenues is then used for building infrastructures such as schools, road improvements, supporting poor and old citizens and improving the quality of life for all Coloradans.

At the moment, four states including the D.C. have permitted marijuana for recreational use. According to Paul Armentano, the deputy director of NORML, the voters’ views on marijuana policy have consistently evolved over the recent decades but the positions of the federally elected members have not increased in the similar manner. The following is the comprehensive list of US representatives and senators that are behind marijuana legalization:

  1. Mike Honda (D.-Calif.)
  2. Jared Huffman (D.-Calif.)
  3. Barbara Lee (D.-Calif.)
  4. Ted Lieu (D.-Calif.)
  5. Zoe Lofgren (D.-Calif.)
  6. Alan Lowenthal (D.-Calif.)
  7. Dana Rohrabacher (R.-Calif.)
  8. Eric Swalwell (D.-Calif.)
  9. Ed Perlmutter (D.-Co.)
  10. Jared Polis (D.-Co.)
  11. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D.-D.C.)
  12. Ruben Gallego (D.-Ill.)
  13. Jan Schakowsky (D.-Ill.)
  14. Chellie Pingree (D.-Maine)
  15. Mike Capuano (D.-Mass.)
  16. Jerrold Nadler (D.-N.Y.)
  17. Earl Blumenauer (D.-Ore.)
  18. Jeff Merkley (D.-Ore.)
