Holds office State House District 53

Candidate in race for State House District 53

Position on Marijuana Legalization

"Yes, we should legalize marijuana and tax it like any other product. Not only do studies show it’s significantly safer than alcohol in many ways, but our country should have learned by now that prohibition creates more problems than it solves. The result has been a criminal justice nightmare for thousands of people who’ve been arrested and prosecuted for possession. This has not only contributed to overcrowding in our prisons and jails, but minorities are incarcerated for marijuana infractions at a much higher rate than the rest of the population."  (Chicago Sun Times, 10/21/18)
