Jacky Rosen is also mentioned in support as she is pro-marijuana legalization. She is a US representative from Nevada and is the Democratic nominee in the 2018 US Senate election. In November 2017 Rosen delivered a statement directed to Speaker Ryan, Leader McConnell, Leader Pelosi, and Leader Schumer, expressing her support to include provisions that provide protection from the federal government to states that have medical marijuana laws on the books. Rosan continues her efforts through early 2018 to as recently as August 8th, 2018 when she signed onto a bipartisan legislation to regulate marijuana like alcohol and remove it from being a schedule I drug.
