Comments

"To be blunt — our Black & brown communities are disproportionately incarcerated bc of the same substances others are building million $ businesses on. It’s past time to decriminalize marijuana & advance equitable & just pathways to economic success for communities most impacted." (04/20/22)

"Decriminalizing marijuana = racial & economic justice. Proud to support the #MOREAct in the House today & move us closer to ending the failed war on drugs that has ravaged Black & brown communities. Our work to repair the hurt & harm of our criminal legal system continues." (04/01/22)

"Legalizing cannabis is a racial & economic justice issue. The MORE Act brings us one step closer to ending the failed war on drugs, but our work isn’t done. The BIPOC communities who have been criminalized/over-policed must reap the financial rewards of the expanding industry." (12/07/20)

"Locally, I’ve been working on the issue of equity in the cannabis industry, this is a fight that I can take to Washington” (12/06/18)
