Holds office U.S. House District 2

Comments

10/15/18: Although I am not personally in favor of legalizing marijuana for recreational use, I am also a strong believer in the 10th Amendment to the Constitution and I believe this is an ultimately a state’s rights issue. However, I am sympathetic to the push to legalize
marijuana strictly for medicinal purposes. As a Veteran myself, I have read many studies that suggest medical marijuana can help veterans struggling with PTSD, as well as to treat symptoms of serious illness and other conditions. I believe further research
should be done in this area.

I am also open to reviewing the findings of studies conducted into the effectiveness of medicinal marijuana as a treatment for certain conditions. https://www.cjonline.com/special/20180714/us-house---2nd-district-steve-watkins
