"I’m glad to see the bipartisan legislation I helped introduce to right this wrong and support legal cannabis businesses in Nevada has passed out of committee. I’ll always work across the aisle to advocate for this important industry for our state." (September 27, 2023).
"I’m working across the aisle to help Nevada’s legal cannabis businesses access much-needed banking and financial services, supporting small businesses and keeping our communities safer in the process." (September 21, 2023).
“Nevada’s marijuana businesses are continuing to operate as cash-only businesses as a result of federal laws blocking access to financial institutions and services, leaving many of these businesses susceptible to theft.” said Senator Rosen. “The SAFE Banking Act will allow our new industry to continue to grow and gain the same access to financial institutions as any other legal business. I will continue to be an advocate for our thriving cannabis industry and work to give these businesses the tools they need to continue to invest in our communities.” (4/11/19)
"I believe that marijuana should be removed as a Schedule 1 drug and that states should be given the right to regulate marijuana use and distribution."
"I have repeatedly worked to ensure the Trump Administration can’t interfere with Nevada’s marijuana industry. In Congress I have co-sponsored the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act, as well as bipartisan legislation like the Respect State Marijuana Laws Act and the Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Through Entrusting States (STATES) Act. "
"I was proud to support Nevada’s marijuana ballot initiative in 2016 and our state has already seen the positive impacts of this industry, including thousands of jobs and millions of dollars in tax revenue. "
