Holds office U.S. House District 11
"Today, I voted to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level. It’s time we end the war on drugs and take long overdue steps to address the devasting injustice surrounding marijuana incarceration and the vastly disproportionate impact it has on communities of color." (4/1/22)
"Another approach we must take to curb opioid addiction is following the example of the state of Michigan to decriminalize marijuana for medicinal and recreational use. Studies have shown that full, federal legalization of medical marijuana in particular could be an effective solution to combat opioid addiction.
In addition to legalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes, I support descheduling marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act and pardoning and wiping the records of past offenders who were convicted of non-violent, marijuana-related crimes. We should begin taxing and regulating marijuana to fund important projects like our roads and our schools." (https://haleystevensforcongress.com/issues/addiction-and-drug-policy/)
