Responses to NC NORML's 2022 Candidate Questionnaire:

Do you support or oppose legalizing the use of physician-authorized medical cannabis?: Support

Comment: I will support any legislation that legalizes and deregulates cannabis. Possession of a plant should always be legal. Cannabis has known medical uses, and consenting adults have a right to control what goes in their body.

Do you support or oppose decriminalizing the simple possession of marijuana?: Support

Comment: It is a plant. People should be free to grow, ingest, smoke and sell it.

Do you support the automatic expungement of non-violent marijuana possession convictions?: Yes

Comment: Possession is a victimless crime, and no one should be punished for it.

Do you support or oppose legalizing and regulating the responsible use of marijuana by adults?: Support

Comment: Marijuana should be regulated the same way tea leaves are. Both are plants with pharmacokinetic properties.
