Earl Blumenauer for Congress: Pro-Pot Spot

One of Congress' most pro-marijuana representatives, Earl Blumenauer, is running for re-election in Oregon's 3rd District in November. Check out one of his ads below.

"Our marijuana laws don't work and cost the government billions," Blumenauer says in the ad. "Let states set their own laws. Tax it, use the money to fund education and let the police focus on real drug abuse. I'm Earl Bluenauer and I approve this message because it's time."

Blumenauer has issued a position paper, The Path Forward, which calls on Congress to: 1. Tax and regulate marijuana; 2. Allow states to enact existing marijuana laws without federal interference; 3. Remove ban on industrial hemp; and 4. Allow the marijuana industry to operate in a normal business environment.
