Holds office State Senate District 1
Rohl said he agrees that much of the state favors the legalization of medical marijuana. And, he said, recreational marijuana also should be legal. Now, he said, there are hundreds of strains of marijuana, each with different effects. As an illegal product, those who want to buy go through a dealer and don’t know which variety they’re getting.
Rohl said buying through a “black market” dealer also opens up people to other illegal substances and pointed to the state’s methamphetamine problem as an example.
If legalized, Rohl said marijuana needs to be regulated and limited to users who are 21 or older.
