Holds office State House District 40
A 'D' letter grade indicates that this candidate has expressed no support for any significant marijuana law reform, though they may have cosponsored/voted for legislation for minor reform (CBD/hemp).
John proposed an amendment to the 2019 North Carolina Farm Bill: "Sheriffs, police and district attorneys around the state also fear a loss of the probable cause that may lead to bigger busts when an officer, or a drug dog, smells weed. An amendment Wednesday seeks to protect those busts until the ban goes into effect, saying any evidence of other crimes obtained in a search can't be thrown out just because what an officer thought was marijuana turned out to be hemp."
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.
