Dixon called marijuana a “hellish gateway drug,”

Holds office State House District 4

Position on Marijuana Legalization

Strongly opposes marijuana legalization

From his editorial in The Sampson Independent:

You cannot distinguish smokable hemp from marijuana and there is no accredited field test that can accurately tell the difference.

I strongly oppose the legalization of marijuana and since you cannot tell the difference between smokable hemp and marijuana I currently oppose smokable hemp and will continue to do so until there is an accredited field test that secures for law enforcement the tools they need to fight the never ending scourge of drug use destroying so many lives and families in our state and nation. 

Position on Medical Marijuana

In response to 2022 NC Family Policy Council's question “Should the use of marijuana for medical purposes be legal in North Carolina?” NO



F Public opposition to significant marijuana law reform (adult use, medical, and/or decriminalization) but may have sponsored and/or voted in favor of CBD/Hemp specific bills.

Supported a ban on smokable hemp flower under SB315. Dixon said "If this bill passes without the ban, we will put 800 of our law enforcement dogs and their handlers out of business."

Attempted to ban smokable hemp via an amendment to the N.C. Controlled Substances Act (SB352 - 2019).
