"It is well beyond time that we streamline and clarify medical-marijuana research. If there is potential for more Americans to live pain-free lives, we owe it to them to get the facts."

“I guess I’m just willing to say a company that’s selling recreational marijuana to our youth and to others, I don’t really care if they have a threat of cash sitting in their basement, if they’re paying their employees in cash,” Stewart said. “I don’t want to make life easier for them. I want to make it more difficult … for them to continue with an enterprise that I think is very harmful to people.” https://www.deseret.com/2019/6/15/20675702/utah-rep-chris-stewart-is-lone-man-in-the-wilderness-opposing-marijuana-banking-bill
