Victoria Steele (D - AZ)
A former state legislator, Steele is longtime supporter on issue, having backed reform bills while in office and including cannabis reform in her platform while running for Congress. Steele is likely to be a new powerful ally in a Senate that could flip control or is highly likely to be tied 15-15. Here is her statement to LD9 Representative, Pam Powers-Hannley: "“I was a drug and alcohol therapist at a rehab center for women. I never once saw anyone overdose on marijuana. But I do see our prisons filled with brown-skinned people on marijuana charges. Decriminalization will help the economy. We will regulate marijuana like alcohol and tobacco. It’s a simple fix.”
