A Richard Sarnwick (D - WI) LEGALIZE, TAX, AND REGULATE

Back in 2018 when he ran, Dr. Sarnwick said "I feel the state should just legalize marijuana. People who use it get it anyway. Take the sale of marijuana away from people who are selling it illegally, and tax the heck out of it.  Use the tax money to fund drug treatment programs, and mental health programs. We should be willing to pay mental health caregivers a great salary, attract them to our state and we will all see dividends from a program like this. I see opportunity to improve our drug treatment and mental health programs using this model. - 2018 Campaign Statement
