Comments

"I am in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana and regulating it similar to alcohol. Currently the Commonwealth is losing out on the economic opportunity to tax marijuana for recreational use. I also believe there are significant benefits to allowing access to marijuana to the public, including curbing opioid abuse." (Courier Journal)

"It is time to allow people with qualifying medical conditions to come out of the shadows and seek relief. They are not criminals and government should not treat them as such." Link
