Holds office U.S. House District 3

Candidate in race for U.S. House District 3

Position on Marijuana Decriminalization

"Democrat Bobby Scott supports medical marijuana. He also says that prohibition has ‘left tens of thousands of minorities behind bars in one state for something that is legal in their neighboring states.'
