As cannabis legalization becomes more common throughout the country, the majority of Tennessee legislators haven’t made any moves toward legalizing the plant here. Rep. Steve Cohen, by far, has shown the most support for cannabis legalization.

Tennessee is one of 20 states with no broad laws legalizing marijuana, while 30 states and the District of Columbia have legalized the herb for either medical or recreational use.

The information in the charts below comes from the Cannabis Voter Project, which aims to “educate Americans about how voting can impact cannabis policy.” The project was launched by HeadCount, a non-partisan organization working to increase voter engagement.
