Holds office State House District 40
Candidate in race for State House District 40
John proposed an amendment to the 2019 North Carolina Farm Bill that "would let police use probable cause to arrest and search someone for suspected marijuana, and even it if was tested later and determined to be hemp, use evidence found through that search for other charges. At least two Republicans argued that the amendment, proposed by Rep. Joe John, a Wake County Democrat, would violate the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and raises issues of property rights and liberty. The amendment passed. An amendment to drop the hemp ban from the Farm Act failed."
Voted Aye on SB124-LEO Managed CBD Oil Drop Box (2018) which proposed that any individual who possesses or uses hemp extract, as defined under this section, shall dispose of all residual oil from the extract at a secure collection box managed by a law enforcement agency, and that any neurologist who approves of dispensing hemp extract to a registered caregiver, shall inform the registered caregiver that disposal must be done at a secure collection box.
