Candidate in race for State Senate District 22 on Tuesday, November 8, 2022
11. Do you support reforming North Carolina’s marijuana laws? Do you support full legalization? Please explain your position.
I do not support the legalization of marijuana for recreational use. Proponents of legalizing marijuana claim it is less harmful than alcohol and tobacco, which are already legal. Just because two substances that can have a negative impact on society and families are legal, that doesn’t mean we should endorse a third. I have personally seen the destruction marijuana can do to individuals and families. I do believe that it should be considered for medical research and treatment.
B- Supports legalization of medical cannabis and/or decriminalization.
