The candidate writes: "The war on drugs has failed. The federal government continues to oppose science and the vast majority of voters when it comes to marijuana legalization. Worse, the current 'grey zone"'of legal for states but illegal at the federal level has been a policy disaster."
Candidate in race for U.S. House District 1 on Tuesday, November 8, 2022
Steiner's website says he is, "Pro-Democracy • Pro-Gun • Pro-Choice"
Max served in the U.S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division and did two years in Iraq in Baghdad and Kirkuk. After leaving Active Duty, Max continued to put his skills and experience to use in the Army Reserves and he is now the First Sergeant of a Civil Affairs Company. He attended UC Berkeley and joined the Foreign Service in 2012 as an economic generalist and served as a Foreign Service Officer in Honduras, Mexico, Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, and Washington, DC.
Forestry and Fire Reforms are one of the main focuses of Steiner's campaign. As a veteran who uses the VA, Max will fight to defend the health benefits of those who served.
I would limit the marijuana purchase age to 21 and tax marijuana dispensaries to fund drug addiction programs (but not tax so high that illegal drugs are cheaper/more available).
