Position on Marijuana Legalization

“I think it’s a matter of when, not if,” he said. “I think there’s a strong fiscal argument supporting legalization.”  -Barickman on legalization with Chicago Sun-Times 12/16/17


"I come as a fiscal conservative who recognizes we need to broaden our tax base. This is an issue that we have talked about through our budget stalemate of the last few years. This is an opportunity to broaden our tax base and hold, if not reduce, the individual income tax rates that today we're struggling with,"  - Barickman on the legalization of cannabis in illinois
