B- Marilyn Holleran (D - FL)

Candidate in race for State Senate District 11 on Tuesday, August 20, 2024

Position on Marijuana Legalization

Speaking to the obsolete and antiquated federal prohibiton of cannabis, Holleran remarekd, "Marijuana has long been viewed as a 'gateway' drug and that is a left over notion from the hysteria from the 60's and 70's. I remember Reefer Madness from junior school." (Candidate Survey Response)

With respect to automatic expungements, Holleran explained, "If we decriminalize possession, then previous possession shouldn't be held against anyone." (Candidate Survey Response)

Position on Marijuana Decriminalization

On decriminalization, Holleran rhetorically questioned, "Do we arrest people for having a jar of ocycontin at their homes? That is a much more dangerous drug than marijuana. Possession for individual use (up to some pre-determined amount) shouldn't be a crime. (Candidate Survey Response)

Position on Medical Marijuana

"[Marijuana] is a pharmaceutical and they are all regulated to some degree. Just add this one to the list. I support the legit use of medical cannabis." (Candidate Survey Response)

Co-sponsored Legislation

While Holleran has yet to hold public office, she has pledged to vote in favor of Florida Amendment 3 come November, stating, "I support the proposed ammendment to the FL consitution." (Candidate Survey Response)
