Candidate in race for U.S. House District 14 on Tuesday, August 20, 2024

Position on Marijuana Legalization

"I support legalizing marijuana." (Candidate Survey Response)

"I support ending the federal prohibition of marijuana. I would advocate for decriminalization and legalization, expunge past convictions, and ensure equitable access to the industry. Ensure that States have autonomy with federal support, and we need to invest in research and education for informed policy decisions. We need to reform outdated laws to project our current majority views on the subject and promote responsible use nationwide." (Candidate Survey Response)

"I support automatic expungement of non-violent marijuana possession convictions. It's crucial for justice reform, removing barriers to employment and housing for affected individuals, and ensuring fairness in our legal system." (Candidate Survey Response)

Position on Marijuana Decriminalization

"I support decriminalization of simple possession of marijuana. Criminalizing individuals for possession disproportionately affects marginalized communities and strains law enforcement resources. Decriminalization allows for more effective use of resources in addressing serious crime while promoting fairness and equity in our justice system." (Candidate Survey Response)

Position on Medical Marijuana

"I strongly support the legalization of medical marijuana at both the federal and state levels. Access to medical marijuana has shown significant benefits for patients suffering from chronic pain, epilepsy, PTSD, and other debilitating conditions where traditional treatments have fallen short. Legalization ensures that patients can receive safe, regulated access to effective treatment options without fear of legal repercussions." (Candidate Survey Response)
