Politician Info
C- Joyce Mason (D - IL) DECRIMINALIZE

Holds office State House District 61

Candidate in race for State House District 61

Position on Marijuana Legalization

"I am still evaluating and researching the pros and cons of this, and plan to spend more time speaking with law enforcement, educators, medical professionals, and families about this topic. I am supportive of de-criminalizing the possession of small amounts of marijuana. I am also supportive of providing patients with certain illnesses and chronic pain the opportunity to use regulated medical marijuana. I believe that in that capacity, it can also be effective in the fight against opioid addiction. However, before I commit to supporting full legalization, I need further time to research and evaluate any potential safety risks to our children and families."  (Chicago Sun Times, 10/20/18)
