Take Action: Tell Your Congressional Representative to Join the Cannabis Caucus
Posted on: February 20, 2019
With public support for reforming marijuana laws at an all time high, key Congressional allies have formed the first-ever Congressional Cannabis Caucus to develop and promote sensible cannabis policy reform and work to ease the tension between federal and state cannabis laws.
Never in modern history has there existed greater public support for ending the nation’s nearly century-long experiment with marijuana prohibition. The continued criminalization of adult marijuana use is out-of-step with the views of adults throughout America, 93% of whom support medical marijuana (Quinnipiac, 2017) and 64 percent of whom endorse the outright legalization of recreational cannabis (Gallup, 2017).
The official establishment of this Caucus represents our growing, bipartisan support in Congress.
In all, ten states that have enacted laws regulating cannabis for adult use, thirty-three states have enacted comprehensive medical cannabis laws, and 14 additional states have enacted more limited medical cannabis laws. In total, 47 US states have adopted laws rolling back cannabis prohibition at the state level, representing 95% of the U.S. House of Representatives and 94% of the Senate.
