Comments

"I support medical marijuana as a way to provide compassion for those suffering from terrible diseases, and decriminalization of the drug will go a long way toward fixing serious issues in our criminal justice system. Likewise, we must begin to treat the opioid crisis plaguing our country as a serious public health issue that requires prevention efforts, treatment options, and public safety tools like the Naloxone antidote. Mass incarceration of non-violent drug offenders or those who lack the resources to post bail is not the answer, and in New Jersey I led the effort to reform our bail system so that dangerous criminals are kept behind bars and being stuck in prison is no longer a penalty for simply being poor."
