11. Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, D-Calif.
This contender for California’s 2018 gubernatorial position has an abundance of political pot-tential.
In fact, the 2018 hopeful has received funding from the state’s legal cannabis industry. To date, his campaign has received $300,000 in funding from cannabis retailers, cultivators, and others.
Though he claims he hasn’t puffed on any green himself, he is one of the first officeholders in the state to support legal recreational use.
