Politician Info
F Gary Palmer (R - AL)

Holds office U.S. House District 6


"Pelosi's pot bill is even more unconscionable with these concerning facts in mind, especially as it ignores common sense safety measures around marijuana use, and also funnels taxpayer dollars to the marijuana industry and convicted drug dealers. In short, the bill would grant easier access to a gateway drug for already vulnerable and struggling people." (12/4/20)

Representative Gary Palmer is mentioned in a news article. " As a retired army officer who suffers from PTSD, the audience member wanted to know Palmer's stance on marijuana and the imprisonment of non-violent criminals.
Both topics are state issues, Palmer said, but he added that he does not support widespread use of marijuana." (8/31/15)

"But I am not for legalizing marijuana," Palmer said. He said he believes that open marijuana markets, like those in Colorado, "are not a good idea."

Asked if many people bring that issue up with him, Palmer said "middle-aged and civil libertarian types who haven't gotten over the 70s."

"They're still listening to the Grateful Dead and watching 'Cheech and Chong'," Palmer said.  "But, with all due respect, they're voters too, but if that's their issue, they need to vote for somebody else." (10/22/14)
