Congressman Oregon's 3rd District
The United States House of Representatives
For more than 40 years, Congressman Earl Blumenauer (OR-03) has fought for the reform of our outdated marijuana laws.
As an Oregon state legislator, Blumenauer worked to pass the Oregon Decriminalization Bill of 1973, which abolished criminal penalties for possession of small amounts of marijuana.
Elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1996, he has championed several legislative efforts to protect medical marijuana patients, allow the federal government to tax and regulate marijuana, and normalize taxes and banking for marijuana businesses in states where it is legal.
As founder of the Congressional Cannabis Caucus, Earl is one the biggest champions of cannabis in Congress – and leading the charge for cannabis legalization across the nation.
