Here’s my general stance on drug regulation:
“Drug regulation and enforcement policies must be compassionately geared toward helping those trapped by drug addiction. All too often, those most in need of help are ostracized and imprisoned, leading to higher crime rates and an epidemic of overdoses.
Regarding the legality of various substances, the proper authority for determining the health and safety of substances is the FDA. The FDA’s role is to protect consumers from unsafe food and drug products. The FDA must carefully study the health implications of substances and warn consumers or regulate substances where necessary.
I support repealing Wisconsin marijuana laws and relying upon the FDA to properly regulate substances.” - source
