Holds office State Senate District 50

Position on Medical Marijuana

In response to 2022 NC Family Policy Council's question “Should the use of marijuana for medical purposes be legal in North Carolina?” UNDECIDED


Smoky Mountain News 8/11/21 - Medical cannabis advancing through General Assembly

“I’ve got mixed emotions about it,” said Sen. Kevin Corbin, R-Franklin. “I don’t have a problem with medical marijuana. I think there’s probably a place for it but I do have concerns about enforcement and about smoking.”

Corbin’s concerns about enforcement center around people with seemingly minor health issues, like back pain, being able to acquire registry identification cards improperly, but he also has a problem with the Act’s provisions allowing the prescription of smokable cannabis flower. 

“When it comes down to it, I’ll have to look at the bill, but if it’s smokable I’m probably a no on that,” he said. If a bill permitting only oral cannabis consumption for medical reasons advances, he said he’d probably vote yes.

In response to 2020 NC Family Policy Council's question "Should North Carolina legalize marijuana for medical purposes?" Corbin answered NO
