How 3 Presidential Candidates Feel about Marijuana

As marijuana becomes a more prevalent issue and way of life within our culture, larger questions must be asked. States that have legalized marijuana recreationally are raking in tax dollars and national leaders are taking notice. Though marijuana may still be federally illegal, looser regulations may come in the future. Here is an overview of the three presidential candidates most likely to take a positive stance on marijuana.


Bernie Sanders

About his time as mayor of Burlington, Vermont:

“I can tell you very few people who were arrested for smoking marijuana [when I was mayor],” he said. “Our police had more important things to do.”


Rand Paul

On medical marijuana care collectives:

“States should be allowed to make a lot of these decisions,” he said. “I want things to be decided more at a local basis, with more compassion.”


Jim Webb

On decriminalization:

“We didn’t make cigarettes illegal,” he said. “We just got the information out there and educated people about the potential harm.”
