Holds office State House District 108
Candidate's response on 7/5/2018:
As stated in my answer above, I am a proponent for legalization. I believe that legalization could bolster the Georgia economy, decrease overcrowding in the corrections system, and increase research, education and information about the positive role marijuana could play in our State.
Candidates response on 7/5/2018:
I would like to see marijuana legalized but am optimistic that current decriminalization laws being enacted in local Georgia cities is a step in the right direction. I would like to see a statewide effort, but I will work for writing laws for legalization over decriminalization.
Candidates response from 7/5/2018:
I believe that there is significant peer-reviewed evidence that’s supports a place for medical marijuana in therapy. As several States have already legalized medical marijuana, I would like for Georgia to “catch up”. Georgia currently has laws on the books that legalized the use of CBD oil for certain conditions, however it is illegal to sell, transport, or cultivate it, so they are empty laws used for optics. I want to change this. I would like to see the day when doctors are legally able to prescribed cannabis in place of opioids for certain conditions.
