Holds office State House District 50
I introduced HB2373, which would legalize and regulate the responsible use of cannabis by adults, because I recognize that it's the only way to completely end prohibition and begin to undo the damage that's been done by the "war on drugs" policy of the past.
Decriminalization would be a tremendous improvement over current law, but what's really needed is full legalization and regulation.
Medical use of cannabis would be a tremendous improvement over current law, but it's fundamentally a half-measure when what is really needed is full legalization.
