Alabama Vote Medical Marijuana Alabama Congressional Scorecard

Attorney General Jeff Sessions gave up his Senate seat to become President Trump’s Attorney General. While AG Sessions hasn’t been a friend of medical cannabis, his seat was ultimately filled by Democrat Doug Jones in a special election. Senator Jones will hold onto his seat until 2020.

If Republicans maintain control of the House of Representatives, possible successors for Appropriations Chair Rodney Frelinghuysen's chairmanship include Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-AL). This could mean stricter rules for medical cannabis amendments during the appropriations process.
