It’s no secret marijuana reform on a federal level will change the game, and it’s a hot topic of debate in congressional hearings for good reason. State laws are all over the place, with some states honoring rec and medical marijuana while others have yet to embrace either.

Candidates’ stance on marijuana legalization and decriminalization is a huge factor in today’s elections. Flip-flopping is a serious let down for voters and advocates who believe they have support, and it seems to happen frequently, so it’s important to follow the news before casting your vote.

Criminal justice reform is another hot topic when it comes to cannabis and politics. Thousands are incarcerated or carrying records that get in the way of progressing in life for crimes that, in some states, are no longer illegal. Some leaders make advocating for these people a priority and are working to put plans in action that will relinquish past crimes and release those incarcerated for non-violent possession charges.

Here, you can stay educated before casting your vote, follow states like New York and California as their leaders pave the way to marijuana possession reform, and keep up to date on the latest bills that influence the stoner lifestyle.
