Holds office U.S. Senate
Candidate in race for U.S. Senate (R)
On GA's medical marijuana bill:
Republican U.S. Sen. David Perdue of Georgia was an "eager supporter" of his efforts. Perdue has not yet taken a position on the federal bill.
"I'm not a doctor, but the only use of marijuana that I would support today would be the medical use of it," he said. "The two doctors in this race have both said that that would be acceptable to them. I've talked to other physicians that think it's a valuable tool to use. I'm basing this on medical thought that that is a tool to use against some treatments for cancer and so forth, and if that can be used medicinally, I would be OK with that."
"But as a senator, I'm telling you that I'm going to support the law of the land in the state of Georgia, that's first of all, second of all, that the medicinal use of it is something that I would be receptive to," he said.
