This New Website Tells You Where Every Politician Stands on Marijuana

2018 is a major election year in the United States as Democrats try to retake control of Congress to stop President Donald Trump's agenda. But now a new website will help you see where politicians stand on a more important issue: Marijuana.

The Cannabis Voter Project is a website that helps track the marijuana views of members of Congress as well as governors for every state. All you have to do is click on the state you're interested in and it will show you all of the elected officials from that state and what their stances are on marijuana. For members of Congress, it shows how the politician voted on cannabis-related bills and for governors it shows both their statements about marijuana as well as legislation related to the issue.

You can also click on each state to see how marijuana will be on the ballot this November. For instance, if you click on Michigan it will tell you about the ballot initiative to legalize recreational cannabis. Or clicking on Illinois will tell you that Democratic nominee for governor J.B. Pritzker supports recreational marijuana. 

The website also includes links for people to help register to vote as well as links to organizations that support marijuana causes and are trying to help cannabis win at the ballot box this November.

Perhaps if more organizations like this begin sprouting up, marijuana will be legalized in all 50 states sooner than we think.

One of the most exciting elements of cannabis legalization are the women-led companies that are developing infused products for women’s bodies. From Whoopi & Maya’s PMS-treating balms and bath salts in California to 48 North’s big plans for beauty products and topicals in Canada, entrepreneurs are creating weed-infused products for women, by women. And they’re pretty damn good.
