Comments

"Arkansas voters approved a referendum on the use of “medical” marijuana. The State is working to design and to comply with this will of the people. Based on all my conversations with patients, physicians, pharmacists, and law enforcement – – as well as employers in Arkansas as well as in other states – – I remain concerned about the use of marijuana as medicine. I believe that if we are serious about the use of marijuana as medicine that we should continue medical research on marijuana and the active ingredients in marijuana. We must continue to bring forth FDA approved drugs that have been proven to offer treatment success with a proper dosage while properly administered by a doctor and a pharmacist. There have been early successes in this safer and well-regarded approach and I certainly support that research and that legitimate analysis to find FDA approved marijuana derivatives for treatment for our citizens."

"I think that's eventually what they're going to do with marijuana: It's a states' rights issue." (7/23/17)
