Comments

"The #MOREAct would completely remove marijuana from the list of controlled substances and begin to repair the harm of discriminatory drug policy through expungement, resentencing, community reinvestment, and social equity. Proud to vote YES today." (04/01/22)

"I have supported [cannabis legalization] for a long time throughout my campaign for a number of reasons. One is because of the effect of criminalizing marijuana on the prison population — the disadvantage that it puts people at. It has a disproportionate effect on minorities. I also have read a number of studies that have made it clear that legalization of marijuana has a beneficial effect on the rate of opioid addiction. Finally, I think that it’s very important for veterans. In Pennsylvania, even though the state has authorized the use of medical marijuana, it can’t be used in veterans’ hospitals because of the federal schedule. So all of these together, I think just really make a compelling case.” (12/05/18)

"Democratic congressional candidate Susan Wild today announced her support of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ recent petition calling for an end to the War on Drugs." Link

Former Allentown solicitor Susan Wild said she would support legalizing marijuana.

“It’s not a matter of decriminalizing so that somebody doesn’t go to jail for it,” Wild said. “It’s a matter of making it into something with which we can actually derive revenues in the form of taxes.” Link
