Rep. Joe LaChance, New Hampshire

As a New Hampshire state representative, Republican Joe LaChance in 2015 sponsored a bill to expand the number of people who could legally obtain medical marijuana at the same time he owned a cannabis consulting business. It did not pass.

LaChance, who is no longer in the House, said he registered the name of the business, but said it never went any further and that he never received any income from it.
