“In March, I supported a bill in the (House) Financial Services Committee to clarify that businesses legally selling cannabis products in accordance with state laws are allowed access to banking services,” Steil said. “This bipartisan legislation, the SAFE Banking Act, is meant to address safety, tax compliance and even money laundering concerns.” (4/19/19)

Q: What is your position on decriminalization of marijuana for recreational or medical use?

A: I’m always concerned that we have a lot of drugs, in particular that get into our high schools. So that’s kind of front of mind. I would be supportive of the FDA doing research into the effects of marijuana, and analyzing that thoughtfully on the medical marijuana side. So, do the research, have the FDA review, and go through a traditional drug process rather than kind of carte blanche authorizing it. I also think we could look to make sure we right-size the criminal laws as it relates to possession of marijuana. (3/28/19) 

“I look in particular at the experiment with medical marijuana and it has drifted into effectively recreational marijuana and I think there is a real risk that will travel into our high schools and be dangerous for our high schools,” said Steil. (10/24/18)
