Comments

While MacArthur’s Democratic opponent, Andrew Kim, wants to remove marijuana from the federal list of controlled substances where it’s currently listed next to heroin, he wants to see more scientific data before Congress acts beyond that.

“When I see stats out there saying that states that allow for medicinal marijuana have 25 percent less opioid related fatalities, that is something that catches my attention and makes me think that this is something that we need to look into and research and do in a responsible way,” Kim told me from a back office in the old bank he’s converted into his headquarters.
