The last five years boast some of the greatest progress in marijuana legislation, possibly ever. Still, politicians and lawmakers continue to relay false information about weed, creating obstacles to full acceptance. But no one is a bigger enemy to marijuana law reform in the US than Senator Jeff Sessions. Despite his efforts to snub out this progress, many politicians who back weed reform disagree with his stance. And they are not backing down but taking action to stop his war on this miracle drug. Though the list of politicians keeps growing, here’s a list of the top 12 influential pro-cannabis politicians to pay attention to.

In the summer of 2017, Sen. Cory Booker introduced the CARERS Act alongside five other leading proponents to call for an end to the federal prohibition on weed, especially for states and territories that currently have laws for medical marijuana.

This bill, called the Compassionate Access, Research Expansion, and Respect States Act ( or the CARERS ACT for short) is currently under consideration. But Sen. Booker made his opinion on the current state of weed laws clear when he helped introduce this bill.

In a room of lawmakers, he argued, “This [prohibition] makes no sense in science, makes no sense in compassion, makes no sense in terms of law, it makes no sense frankly in terms of economics.”

Furthermore, Booker is responsible for bringing forward the important Marijuana Justice Act.
