Comments

"Nevada's legalization of marijuana has proven that it has a place in the modern market and that it is valued by consumers; by the people. It's time we recognize what we have seen in the eleven states that have legalized marijuana and begin passing legislation that allows this industry to operate as a legitimate business, with access to SAFE Banking."

“I do support the state’s rights and the voters in the states that have approved recreational marijuana to allow their rights to be upheld and that the federal government needs to stay out of it,” he said, criticizing Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ recent decision to rescind a memo that directed prosecutors to avoid raiding state-legal marijuana businesses.

“They knew that he was going to pass policies to lock more people up so that they could make more profit,” he said. “And Jeff Sessions’ attempts to criminalize marijuana use when most Americans believe that that should not be the case is nothing more than an attempt to lock up more Americans. And disproportionately, people of color — African Americans and Latinos. African American men, who are already serving sentences far longer than they should for drug use.” (1/24/18)
