18PVS-19 on Aug 1, 2018

Political Group Survey: the PVS survey question on recreational marijuana
Source: PVS Survey
Project Vote Smart inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Marijuana: Do you support the legalization of marijuana for recreational purposes?' PVS self-description: "The Political Courage Test provides voters with positions on key issues. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads." Also see the related NORML ratings.
