Oregon Congressman and Marijuana Advocate Earl Blumenauer
NCIA Government Relations Coordinator Michelle Rutter and Director of Government Relations Michael Correia speak with Oregon Congressman and Marijuana Advocate Earl Blumenauer.
Blumenauer is the Unites States Representative for Oregon’s 3rd congressional district. Representative Blumenauer supports legislation that would: Allow states to enact existing marijuana laws without federal interference.
On the congressman’s website, he exclaims, “Marijuana policy at the state level has shifted significantly in recent years as states have moved to legalize the drug for both medicinal and adult use. Unfortunately, federal marijuana policy remains rooted in the past, as all types of marijuana continue to remain illegal under federal law.”
