Position on Marijuana Legalization

Marijuana is less addictive or destructive than alcohol, but far more people are imprisoned because of it. We need to legalize it and regulate it to remove the stigma and allow people to live productive, happy lives instead of being jailed or professionally stunted because of one-time use. I also support its medical uses; we need to allow doctors to use it to treat illness when appropriate. 

I believe marijuana should be regulated and taxed the same as alcohol. It is much less destructive and has many more uses. 

Position on Marijuana Decriminalization

I don't believe one should be subject to any fine or punishment for possessing marijuana when one wouldn't be subject to the same for alcohol possession.

For far too long, men and women have had their lives and opportunities taken away or depressed because of the nonsensical punishment of marijuana possession. 

Position on Medical Marijuana

The medical uses have been proven with studies for 50 years. Like anything medication, it doesn't affect everyone the same, so medicinal use needs to be determined by a doctor.
