Comments

"With a total of 47 states now having reformed their laws pertaining to marijuana use in one way or another, it is now time for Congress to take action at the federal level. The #MOREAct will right the scales for people who have been imprisoned at a disproportionate rate for marijuana-related offenses; clear the way for patients to more readily obtain medical cannabis treatments; and ensure that the cannabis market will be an equal-opportunity industry moving forward. #EndCannabisProhibition" (12/04/20)

"I am a cosponsor of HR 1841, the bipartisan Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act, which would eliminate the federal ban on marijuana and allow the voters of each state to choose their laws on recreational and medical marijuana without interference from the federal government." (01/12/18)

"STATES SUCH AS COLORADO AND NOW SEVERAL OTHERS THAT HAVE ALREADY VOTED TO LEGALIZE MARIJUANA, AS A BELIEVER IN FEDERALISM, I DON'T THINK THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD DO ANYTHING TO IMPEDE THAT." "I AM CONCERNED THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WOULD COME IN AND DECIDE THAT IT KNOWS BETTER THAN WHAT THE PEOPLE OF COLORADO OR THE PEOPLE OF OTHER STATES HAVE LEGALIZED AT THE BALLOT BOX. THERE IS A PROHIBITION AS IT RELATES TO BANKING FOR THOSE IN THE MARIJUANA INDUSTRY. I AM NOT A MARIJUANA GUY, BUT IF PEOPLE GO OUT AND VOTE FOR IT AND MAKE IT LEGAL, AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BE DOING ANYTHING -- THEN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BE DOING ANYTHING."
