Massachusetts lawmakers, for instance, have a mixed record on pot. U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren comes out the most pot-friendly, registering votes or positions aligned on all seven issues rated by pot legalization groups. U.S. Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy III is at the other end of the spectrum, voting or taking positions with the marijuana industry on just one of seven issues.
D’Arcangelo said he hopes pot users “get excited about voting” once they realize how crucial it is to elect candidates and elected leaders that support their causes.
D’Arcangelo called Massachusetts “a great example” of the need to galvanize pot smokers because of the effort by many local elected leaders to ban pot in their towns.
