Candidate in race for Governor on Tuesday, November 8, 2022
The Tennesean asked Jason Martin in their candidate survey: "What are you hearing most from voters about what they want you to accomplish, if elected?"
"We need to legalize cannabis for medical and recreational use. We could use the hundreds of millions of dollars of tax revenue from this regulated market to support causes like education, healthcare, and infrastructure. We should stop locking up primarily Black and brown Tennesseans for small cannabis drug offenses and use those law enforcement resources more appropriately. We should give our farmers a new crop to save the family farm. We should have access to cannabis for medical purposes -- for cancer patients, and chronic pain patients. States with legalized cannabis have fewer opioid deaths, too." 7/15/22
