Politician Info
C Donald Bacon (R - NE)

Representative Donald Bacon has had a mixed record regarding marijuana legislation. He has publicly stated that he does not believe the plant should be legalized personally, but voted in favor of and co-sponsored the SAFE Banking Act of 2019, a progressive piece of ancillary legislation. While not a pioneer for reform, Rep. Bacon is not an active opponent. 

Holds office U.S. House District 2


When speaking about the MORE Act of 2020 Rep. Bacon tweeted, "This bill was not a states' rights bill on marijuana. It mandated legalization & will use taxpayer money to support the marijuana industry. I want Nebraskans to make this choice for Nebraska & tax payers shouldn’t have to subsidize any marijuana business." (12/04/20)

And on the question of medical marijuana, Bacon said he doesn't personally support legalization but believes states should make the decision.
