Holds office State House District 49

12. Do you support reforming North Carolina’s marijuana laws? Do you support full legalization? Please explain your position.
I support the legalization and regulated prescription of medical marijuana for those who suffer from chronic pain. With representation from the healthcare, economic development, agriculture, and public safety communities, we should study the impacts of the legalization of recreational marijuana. Both medical and recreational marijuana could provide our farmers with a product that can keep them from bankruptcy as well as an increased tax base for our state. After a study that carefully investigates and recommends the guidelines we should follow, the legalization of recreational marijuana should be carefully regulated and controlled. It is inconsistent that our policies encourage the use of alcohol which is much more damaging to health and safety.
SHOULD MEDICAL MARIJUANA BE LEGALIZED IN NORTH CAROLINA?
B Publicly supports legalization of medical cannabis and/or decriminalization - cosponsor of legislation.
