U.S. Reps Graded on Seven Bills Affecting Marijuana, Hemp, and New Psychoactive Substances
Congressional Support for Drug Policy Reform Surges; Reps Earning Perfect Grade Doubles in Two Years
Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–October 25, 2016. Today, Drug Policy Action released its 2016 Congressional Voter Guide which grades members of Congress on how they voted on seven key drug policy reform votes in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2015 and 2016 (there were no drug policy votes on the Senate floor that could be scored).
A record number of U.S. House Representatives earned a perfect score (“A” grade) – more than double the number of Representatives who earned a perfect score from Drug Policy Action in 2014. More than half of all U.S. Representatives (177 Democrats and 64 Republicans) earned a “C” or better.
