Presenting the 2014 MJINews Power Politicians

Welcome the 2014 MJINews Power Politicians. These are the 10 politicians who affect legislation for the legal marijuana industry, spanning federal, state and municipal jurisdictions. These politicians wield enough power to actually influence, whether positively or negatively, the investment landscape of legal marijuana and its taxation.

We have chosen to highlight Power Politicians as our second list in our Power List series because the upcoming elections have the potential to alter the legislative playing field for legalization, which will directly affect future investments in the industry.

Sound investments come from sound information. The MJINews Power Lists are designed to give you the people and places to watch.
