Position on Marijuana Decriminalization
"State policies on marijuana have rapidly evolved to reflect both public opinion and scientific data, but the federal government has failed to keep pace. I support Congress removing marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act and allowing states to enact marijuana laws without federal interference. Additionally, I believe we should end the ban on industrial hemp by removing it from the definition of marijuana. This change would allow an agricultural industry that’s already started in the Commonwealth to flourish. Finally, I support allowing the marijuana industry to operate in a normal business environment – that means removing banking barriers to allow legitimate businesses to operate in states that have legalized marijuana for medical and adult-use.” - Abigail Spanberger for Congress
