NORML Grades Congress

The magic number is “24.”  There are twenty-four members in Congress [22 in the House; 2 Senators] who would re-legalize if it were up to them.  Is your Member of Congress on this list?  Do you know who represents you?  Do they represent you?

While many marijuana reform measures have attracted bipartisan support in Congress, the scorecard does show a significant partisan split on marijuana policy: 92 percent of Democrats received a grade of ‘C’ or higher, compared to only 37 percent of Republicans.

Among the 22 congressmen supporting full marijuana legalization only one, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R.-Calif.) is a Republican. Conversely, among the 32 most vocal opponents of marijuana reform only one, Sen. Tom Carper (D.-Del.) is a Democrat.
. . .
Twenty U.S. representatives and two senators received an ‘A’ grade, indicating that “this member has publicly declared his/her support for the legalization and regulation of marijuana for adults,” according to NORML . . .
