    ISSUES: Rep. Dana Rohrabacher

    AGAINST

    Cannabis

    As medical and recreational marijuana are legalized state by state, there is rising support by voters on both sides to make it fully legal. source

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    The GOP voter pool is experiencing a shift in recent years. While there are strong concerns about health concerns related to the drug, there is rising support by voters to legalize. Supporters want the rights and power to legalize to remain with the states.

    FOR Democrats

    The party strongly supports the legalization of cannabis. There is some debate on whether it should be fully decriminalized and regulated by the federal government or if these decisions should be left to each state.


    AGAINST

    Voting

    There are various aspects to voting that are in contention. Two popular topics are securing the ballots and if a popular vote should replace electoral votes.

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    Against Popular vote. Republicans support greater transparency, stronger security, and a paper ballot. They strongly oppose a popular vote because they feel it would make ballot boxes and technology more vulnerable to exploitation. source

    FOR Democrats

    For popular vote. Democrats support further funding of HAVA and updating equipment to support more secure paper ballots. They believe everyone has a right to vote, including people who have already served their time for past legal transgressions. There is also a movement to push for a National Popular Vote instead of an electoral vote because it is more in line with the voice of those voting. source
