Candidate in race for Lieutenant Governor
Mr. Henry responded to NORML's candidate questionnaire on 7/22/20 stating, "I support full legalization of cannabis in the U.S. The federal prohibition of cannabis in any form is, and has been, an organized crime in itself. Despite the illegality placed on cannabis, cannabis and its byproducts still dominate food, medical, and industrial markets across the globe. There is ample science and information on the Human Endocannabinoid System, and all endocannabinoid systems of all vertebrate creatures on Earth. U.S. policies on cannabis and other drugs has greatly influenced world policies placing cannabis among the most dangerous and deadliest of drugs; criminalizing the plant. Cannabis has never caused death from use, and it continues to be attacked by industries threatened by it's superiority in uses, safety, and effectiveness."
“Hoosiers continue to be harassed, arrested, prosecuted, publicly humiliated, and lose their jobs for choosing to self-medicate with therapeutic levels of THC like our neighboring states get to freely use right now,” William Henry, Indiana NORML Chairman, told The Marijuana Times. “Our liberty continues to be violated, and Hoosiers are not happy.” (2/22/20)
