Congressman Van Orden Survey lacks cannabis reform

The March 13th, 2023 email update from Congressman Derek Van Orden contains a constituent survey. Unfortunately cannabis reform must not even be on the radar screen of this former Navy Seal now that he is in office because the topic did not make his survey.

Fortunately there is a chance to simply check the box “Other” under your priorities and manually input “the legalization of marijuana“. Or type whatever you want, the point is this is another opportunity to be on record to your congressman about the need for him to represent your priorities while in Washington D.C.

When we follow up with him we certainly ask him the results of the survey. Sometimes these politicians even publish the survey results.

Back in 2020 Derrick Van Orden participated in some facebook banter about cannabis reform with a veteran cannabis activist.  Van Order replied “I support the legalization of medical marijuana, not recreational.”  He goes onto  add “That may not be popular position with some Republicans, but it has been proven to work for several different conditions.  As a SEAL, we understand that if it works, it works.”  Since that time, it seems Derrick has dodged the issue, candidate interviews and debates.

Van Orden takes the seat of Ron Kind (D), leaving only two Democrats representing Wisconsin in the US House of Representatives. Van Orden was labeled as one of the Republicans to keep an eye on in 2023.

Will Van Orden be able to work with the federal legislators who care about medical cannabis reform or was his banter just that?
