    ISSUES: Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen

    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

    Transportation

    $
    Nearly one-fifth of the Highway Trust Fund is allocated to mass transit like city bus routes or light rails.

    DETAILS:

    AGAINST Republicans

    Republicans want to cut mass public transit allocations from the Highway Trust Fund as they only serve a small local population rather than the larger infrastructure. They want to put the funding responsibility back in the hands of cities and relevant programs. They oppose an increase in raising the federal gas tax. source

    FOR Democrats

    Feel that government funded mass transport helps improve urban economies by giving low- and middle-class wage earners an alternative to get to work, school, and other essential locations. They also support an increase in the federal gas tax. source
