Alec Johnson (D - TX)
In an interview with Texas NORML, Alec Johnson expressed his support for legalization of marijuana and “expunging the records” of past marijuana convictions.
During the primaries he said, “ I favor outright legalization of marijuana. Anti-marijuana laws
were first and foremost Jim Crow laws and racist in origin. That origin, and the fact that marijuana is far less dangerous than legal alcohol consumption makes it clear to me that full de-criminalization makes the most sense. It would also help end the racist war on drugs which has been a war on communities of people of color.”
