B+ Anthony Hudson (R - MI)

Candidate in race for U.S. House District 8 on Tuesday, August 6, 2024

Position on Marijuana Legalization

"I publicly support the legalization of marijuana recreationally on a federal level." (Candidate Survey Response)

"The federal legalization would address the issue of inconsistent enforcement and ensure a more uniform approach to marijuana regulation across all states. Currently, the patchwork of differing state laws creates confusion and challenges for law enforcement agencies, as well as individuals who navigate across state lines. A federal framework would provide clarity and streamline the regulation of marijuana, making it easier for both individuals and law enforcement to operate within a clear legal framework. I firmly believe that the federal legalization of marijuana is a sensible policy choice. By embracing this change, we can uphold the principles of limited government, promote economic growth, ensure uniform regulation, enhance consumer safety, and contribute to criminal justice reform. It is time for our nation to embrace a forward-thinking approach towards marijuana legalization." (Candidate Survey Response)

"I support the legalization and regulation of marijuana for adult use. This approach aligns with our principles of limited government, individual liberty, and fiscal responsibility. Legalization allows for regulation and control of the market, ensuring product safety and quality. It also generates tax revenue, which can be allocated towards important initiatives such as our National deficit . By legalizing marijuana, we can redirect law enforcement resources towards more pressing issues, reduce the burden on our criminal justice system, and empower individuals to make their own choices responsibly." (Candidate Survey Response)

"I fully support the expungement of marijuana charges. It is unjust for individuals to carry the burden of a criminal record for non-violent marijuana offenses. Expungement allows for a fresh start, removing barriers to employment, housing, and education. It promotes fairness and equity, particularly for marginalized communities disproportionately impacted by marijuana-related arrests. Expungement also aligns with the evolving attitudes towards marijuana, where many states have legalized or decriminalized its use. By expunging these charges, we can rectify past injustices, cultivate social and economic opportunities, and work towards a more equitable and compassionate society." (Candidate Survey Response)

Position on Marijuana Decriminalization

"I support decriminalizing the simple possession of marijuana because it would help alleviate the burden on the criminal justice system, redirect resources towards more serious crimes, and reduce the disproportionate impact on marginalized communities. It would also promote a public health approach, focusing on education, harm reduction, and treatment rather than punishment. Decriminalization would allow individuals to possess small amounts of marijuana without facing criminal charges, reducing the negative consequences associated with a criminal record. Ultimately, it would promote a more equitable and compassionate approach to drug policy while respecting personal freedoms." (Candidate Survey Response)

Position on Medical Marijuana

"I support medically prescribed marijuana by a physician because it provides patients with a potentially effective and natural alternative for managing their medical conditions." (Candidate Survey Response)
