Position on Medical Marijuana

“I do sense that public opinion is changing on marijuana, both medical and recreational,” he said to reporters. “I don’t know where the members of the General Assembly are at this time in terms of support for the bill, but it’s something we’ll look at and see how things move along.”

In the same interview, Berger also expressed support for Sen. Rabon.

“I know it’s something that Senator Rabon for a long time has looked at the issue of medical marijuana, particularly how some people respond to treatment for cancer, with some of the cancer medications that are out there,” he said.
