Holds office U.S. House District 5

Candidate in race for U.S. House District 5

Position on Marijuana Legalization

Do you support changing the law to release non-violent drug offenders currently serving federal prison terms?

Yes. Our American criminal justice system, which incarcerates the highest number of people per capita in the world, must be re-imagined. Paired with the legalization of marijuana and the decriminalization of all drugs, we must create a system focus on treatment and rehabilitation, not punishment.

Comments

"The War on Drugs has disproportionately impacted communities of color. The only way to repair the harm caused in communities across the country is to end the War on Drugs, and repairing the damage by intentionally investing in education, housing, healthcare, and employment. 

     - Legalize recreational cannabis nationwide, expunge the records and seek amnesty for those incarcerated for cannabis-related offenses.

     - End mandatory minimum sentencing laws for low-level offenses.

     - Invest in a public-health approach to the addiction crisis.

     - Demilitarize police departments and push for federal investigations into local departments who utilize practices like arrest quotas."
