Election Results Affect Nationwide Cannabis Legislation


The top cannabis ally in Congress sounded downright giddy Wednesday as he discussed what the midterm election results could mean for cannabis reform at the federal level.

“It was a big night,” US Rep. Earl Blumenauer said Wednesday on a conference call with reporters. “Three states approved: Utah, Missouri, and Michigan with adult use, continuing the string that started in 2016,” when voters seven states legalized some form of cannabis.

The results don’t just mean action at the state level, either, Blumenauer said. It could also bode well for reform nationwide. Last month the Oregon Democrat released a step-by-step “Blueprint to Legalize Marijuana” aimed at ending federal cannabis prohibition, and he said Tuesday’s results bode well for pushing that plan forward.
