C- Greg Gianforte (R - MT) DECRIMINALIZE

Gianforte has expressed a lot of concern regarding medical marijuana, but has conceded that he will not push against access to medical marijuana for qualifying patients in Montana. He has been quoted saying that rescheduling marijuana is a "misplaced priority" and strongly asserts that there is not enough research conducted on the ill-effects of marijuana use.

Comments

Ina constituent response letter, Greg stated: "Currently, marijuana is considered a Schedule I drug. I oppose the recreational use of Schedule I drugs. I see a difference between medical and recreational use of marijuana. After closely examining the health benefits of medical marijuana, I support continuing the legality of medical marijuana in Montana, as long as the industry remains well managed for public safety."

FEB 4, 2020: “To consider making any Schedule I drug legal and more readily available without adequate research is a misplaced priority as addiction continues to ravage our country. Instead, we should support focusing on combating addiction, building on this committee’s bipartisan work and the success of the SUPPORT Act from last Congress. We need to continue to support those who face addiction and need the help the most, rather than making marijuana easier to access when we don’t know the full effects on our communities.”
