Do You Care About Legalizing Marijuana and Industrial Hemp?

Then here is whom to vote for on November 4!

What is it?

  • Marijuana legalization has recently experienced a major turnaround in public policy, with legal pot now available in Colorado and Washington, with more states to soon follow.

  • Another 25 states currently allow "medical marijuana", requiring a doctor's prescription, and with varying degrees of enforcement over what exactly constitutes "medical need." Recent legislation on this aspect, of reducing the automatic imprisonment for drug offenses, includes the Federal First Offender Improvement Act

  • Since federal law still keeps marijuana illegal for any purpose, the issue in the 2014 election is what the federal government should do, when federal law is in conflict with state law. Recent legislation on this aspect includes the Respect State Marijuana Laws Act

  • Industrial hemp poses a particular dilemma for Drug Warriors, since it would be a profitable U.S. crop (it is currently all imported) but is banned because of its close relationship to marijuana. Recent legislation on this aspect includes the Industrial Hemp Farming Act.

  • In some cases, supporters of industrial hemp also oppose marijuana legalization (such as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell). Their vote is hence hard to predict, depending on whether the bill is framed as an economic issue or a drug-war issue.

How does it get passed?

It takes 218 Congresspersons to pass marijuana legalization bills in the House of Representatives. It takes 50 Senators in the Senate.

What's happened so far?

The last major House bill, (prohibiting federal enforcement against state medical marijuana), passed the House with 219 votes. That will change if opponents of marijuana legalization win the House; opponents need only 16 more House votes on the next bill to win.

Marijuana bills usually do not get to a vote in the Senate. The last major Senate bill, the (Illegal Drug Amendment), a typical "Drug War" bill, passed with 52 votes in the Senate. Supporters of marijuana legalization only need 2 more Senate votes to win on the next bill on this topic.

What will the candidates running in my area on November 4 do?

You'll see below the names of everyone running, for whom we can predict their vote on this issue. They are organized alphabetically by State in one of the two lists below!

The PRO list are those running in 2014 who have supported legalized marijuana or industrial hemp.

The CON list are those running in 2014 who have opposed legalized marijuana or industrial hemp.

An interpretation key appears at the bottom.

Get your friends and family and friends on Facebook and Twitter and elsewhere to help elect 218 and 50 and legalized marijuana will pass!

    How to interpret this page

  • The list above includes candidates for Senate and House seats in 2014.
  • All of the above ratings are based on multiple sources of information.
  • The sources of information include legislative votes; bill sponsorships; group ratings; campaign websites; campaign debates; and biographical books.
  • Each information source is rated as supporting the topic, or opposing the topic.
  • The number of opposing sources is subtracted from the number of supporting sources; if the net sum is positive, the candidate counts as "Pro"; if negative, the candidate counts as "Con."
  • Click on the candidate's name to see the list of information sources, and whether we rate is as supporting or opposing.
  • Click on the date of each information source to see a full excerpt and context.

    Key for Pro votes:
  • An aboslute YES vote: 5 or more net supporting information sources, indicating consistent and long-standing support
  • A solid YES vote: 3 or 4 net supporting information sources, indicating substantive support
  • A likely YES vote: 1 or 2 net supporting information sources, indicating some support but not enough for certitude.
  • If a candidate has a net zero supporting information sources (or no information sources), that candidate is not listed above at all.

    Key for Con votes:
  • An absolute NO vote: 5 or more net opposinginformation sources, indicating consistent and long-standing opposition
  • A solid NO vote: 3 or 4 net opposing information sources, indicating substantive opposition
  • A likely NO vote: 1 or 2 net opposing information sources, indicating some opposition but not enough for certitude.


  • The above list is not fully inclusive; many House challengers are not included, but all House incumbents are eligibla.
  • All major-party Senate candidates (and incumbents) are eligible; and most Senate challengers are, too.
  • Some of the candidates listed above lost in the primary, but are still listed.
