    Here's where our Congressmen fall on the Marijuana Spectrum:

    Senators:

    Bill Cassidy - B+
    Votes
    (Dr Cassidy has a very good track record voting for Medical Cannabis Legalization)
    Daines/Merkley Amendment (2016) Yes
    Mikulski Amendment (2016) Yes
    Merkley Amendment (2016) Yes
    Daines/Merkley Amendment (2015) Yes
    Mikulski Amendment (2015) Yes
    Merkley Amendment (2015)

    John Neely Kennedy - F
    Strongly opposes legalizing Marijuana in any form. He's a Session's reefer madness 20th century minion.

    Reps:

    Cedric Richmond - B

    (Good voting track record for legalizing cannabis)

    Votes

    Veterans Equal Access Amendment (2016) Yes
    McClintock/Polis Amendment (2015) Yes
    Rohrabacher/Farr Amendment (2015) Yes
    Veterans Equal Access Amendment (2015) Yes

    Ralph Abraham - F
    Garrett Graves - F
    Steve Scalise - F


    All voted as follows:
    Votes:
    Veterans Equal Access Amendment (2016) No
    McClintock/Polis Amendment (2015) No
    Rohrabacher/Farr Amendment (2015) No
    Veterans Equal Access Amendment (2015) No

    Mike Johnson - F

    Mike Johnson voted Nay (Passage With Amendment) - SB 271 - Expands Eligibility for Medical Marijuana
    Mike Johnson voted Nay (Passage) - HB 149 - Reduced Penalties for Marijuana Possession
    Clay Higgins - F (Stated he opposed legal Cannabis)

    So, in summary, looks like Louisiana has a huge delegation of Jeff Session's reefer madness minions: (or, Staunch, i'll tell you how to live your life Conservatives)

    Ralph Abraham - F
    Garrett Graves - F
    Steve Scalise - F
    Mike Johnson - F
    Clay Higgins -F
    John Neely Kennedy - F

    Except for Senator Kennedy, every other Session's minion can be voted out of office this year. Ideally, i'll be looking for 'Libertarian' Republicans in the mold of Rand Paul to support. But any upgrade will do, even Democrats.
