Don Young, Cannabis

"I’ve visited my state’s legal cannabis operations, and the fact is that these businesses contribute to our economy and create jobs for Alaskans," Rep. Don Young said in 2020 during a visit to a cannabis business in Alaska. 

U.S. Rep. Don Young has introduced the Gun Rights and Marijuana (GRAM) Act to prevent the federal government from restricting gun owner rights of marijuana users in states and jurisdictions where cannabis is legal.

Young, who co-chairs the Congressional Cannabis Caucus, aims “to secure the Second Amendment rights of Americans living in jurisdictions with legal adult-use and medicinal marijuana,” according to a news release from Young’s office.
