Rep. Jagler has been "swayed" to support medical marijuana and now sits on the committee for the 2019-20 that medical marijuana bills. As a Republican he did not officially co-sponsor any medical marijuana legislation, but he did express the need for a public hearing on adult use / recreational marijuana and with a little work he could easily be an A+ legisaltor on medical marijuana and lead the conversation on cannabis reform within the Republican Party.

While he said there is a case to be made for medical marijuana, Jagler does not support full legalization of it. He said he believes it is a gateway drug. Silbernagel took issue with that, explaining that there was no scientific research that backed up that notion.
None at this time, but Rep. Jagler is a member on the Assembly Committee on State Affairs that will handle medical marijuana legislation for the 2019-2020 session. The bill is awaiting a public hearing.
