Race for U.S. Senate
B
Mazie Hirono (D)

Strongly asserts that the federal government should leave marijuana as a State issue. She signed a letter with numerous other senators urging the federal government to do so, stating: 

“It is our hope that the fiscal year 2018 appropriations will alleviate the turbulence the Attorney General’s abrupt decision has caused and that the appropriations will help preserve the strong regulatory frameworks the states have created,” the Senators continued. “Doing so will provide the opportunity to pursue federal legislation that both protects the legitimate federal interests at stake and respects the will of the states – both those that have liberalized their marijuana laws and those that have not.”
