Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Poll shows growing support for Reschenthaler’s clean slate bill for federal marijuana convictions

A new poll finds that Reps. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) and Lisa Blunt-Rochester’s (D-RI) Clean Slate Act has strong bipartisan support after the legislation was reintroduced in Congress this past April. Seventy-one percent of Americans support the bill, which would automatically seal federal nonviolent marijuana offenses and simple possession of other drugs, with only 19 percent opposing. The favorable results hold steady across political party, race, gender, and age.
