Politician Info
A+ Joshua Cole (D - VA) LEGALIZE, TAX, AND REGULATE DECRIMINALIZE MEDICAL USE

Holds office State House District 28

Candidate in race for State House District 28 on Tuesday, November 2, 2021

Position on Marijuana Legalization

I fully support legalizing, taxing, and regulating responsible adult usage of cannabis products for adults over the age of 21 across the Commonwealth of Virginia. Colorado has been a model of success that Virginia should look at regarding the massive amount of tax-revenue brought in by cannabis sales. We need to take that tax money and allocate it to improvements across the state in the areas of education and transportation infrastructure..

Position on Medical Marijuana

Marijuana is life saving medicine for those inflicted with conditions such as chronic pain, seizures, and those undergoing chemo-therapy cancer treatments. We need to move to a more accessible and state-legal model for various methods of consumption beyond the CBD and THC-A oils currently allowed by prescription in the Commonwealth.
