Holds office State Senate District 41

Comments

Regarding the MRTA: “At a time when we have all been told repeatedly to ‘follow the science,’ scientific and other concerns put forth by public health officials, law enforcement, and members of our school and business communities have been ignored so the state can profit off a bill that unfortunately remains dangerously flawed. Unlike with alcohol, currently, no accurate roadside scientific test exists to detect marijuana in an impaired driver, making it incredibly difficult to deter impaired driving, and even more difficult to hold those who do drive while impaired accountable for any harm they may cause. A lack of available detection methods will also pose a number of health and safety challenges in the workplace—whether on a construction site, in a healthcare facility or elsewhere. Most importantly, while the intent of this bill is to legalize only adult-use recreational marijuana, I remain incredibly worried about the unintended consequences it will have on our kids."  3/31/21
