Politician Info
B John D'Amico (D - IL)

Holds office State House District 15

Candidate in race for State House District 15

Position on Marijuana Legalization

"I would only support legislation that includes input from law enforcement, educators, and medical personnel. For example, I supported House Bill 1 (98th General Assembly) which legalized medical marijuana.

However, I will not support any legislation that would increase impaired driving or making it easier for teenagers to acquire mind-altering drugs. For example, I voted against House Bill 218 (98th General Assembly) which legalized small amounts of marijuana."  (Chicago Sun Times, 10/18/18)
