A+ Kristina Lyerly (D - WI) LEGALIZE, TAX, AND REGULATE DECRIMINALIZE MEDICAL USE

It should be legal, no question. That said, as a physician, I also want to be sure that vulnerable populations, especially pregnant women (my area of expertise) have access to the educational materials they need to make healthy choices and avoid marijuana in pregnancy, same as we recommend that they avoid alcohol.”

Biography

Democrat Dr. Kristin Lyerly is an obstetrician/gynecologist, mother and fierce advocate for women and families who knows we need to move beyond partisan politics to strengthen our communities by building relationships and bridging divides.

Position on Marijuana Legalization

Beyond the fact that there was never a sound reason to criminalize marijuana initially, there has never been a better time to make the change. When our communities emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic we will quickly come to understand the massive government spending that was required. Tax revenue from legalization would be a simple and effective way to fund our governments return to normalcy.

Position on Marijuana Decriminalization

Criminalization of marijuana leads to racial and socioeconomic disparities, burdens our criminal justice system, and simply doesn’t make sense.

America bears the shame of having the highest incarcerated population in the world, largely due to over enforcement of needless and petty laws. I fully support efforts to reduce the impact of the mistakes we have already made.

Position on Medical Marijuana

As a physician I recognize the medical utility of this therapeutic option.
