On Tuesday, individuals across the Silver State will gather together to caucus with their friends and neighbors during the Republican presidential caucus. MPP encourages all of our supporters in Nevada to use this opportunity to caucus for sensible marijuana policy reform!
You can start by reviewing the responses of some of the Republican candidates to the following question:
“If elected, how would your administration address the current tension between state and federal marijuana laws?”
This question, which to date has not been specifically addressed by Sen. Ted Cruz (TX) or businessman Donald Trump, was asked as a direct result of our partnership with Change Politics. Please visit our page on their site and continue to “up-vote” all of our questions to be sure all the candidates' views on marijuana policy reform are thoroughly addressed.
If you’d like more in-depth information, please see MPP’s presidential report card, which has information about both the Republican and Democratic candidates. Of those still in the race, Donald Trump leads the Republican pack having earned a C+; Sen. Ted Cruz is close behind with a C.
Last month, MPP partnered with ChangePolitics for the launch of its new platform, which is designed to ask questions of the presidential candidates and get them on the record about various policy issues.
One of MPP’s questions made it into the top 10 “Most Popular in New Hampshire,” and the Concord Monitor editorial team selected it as one of the final five to be answered by the candidates just ahead of the nation’s first primary election on February 9.
If elected, how would your administration address the current tension between state and federal marijuana laws?
You can check out the responses from the Democratic candidates and the responses from the Republican candidates at ChangePolitics.org. Also be sure to visit MPP's profile page to view and vote for all of our questions so we can get more responses from the candidates.
There has been a lot of discussion about marijuana policy during the 2016 presidential race, but there are still some questions that the candidates need to address.
In order to get some answers, we have partnered with Change.org for the launch of ChangePolitics, a mobile elections platform that enables voters to engage with the candidates on the issues they care about by asking and upvoting questions.
- Do you think seriously ill people should be allowed to access medical marijuana if their doctors recommend it?
- Do you think it should be a crime for adults to consume marijuana responsibly? Why?
- If elected, how would your administration address the current tension between state and federal marijuana laws?
- Do you think marijuana prohibition has been more effective than alcohol prohibition, less effective, or equally effective?
