Comments

-His reply (2017) for a constituent regarding MMJ and Veterans: "While I have long contended that legalizing marijuana would be harmful to our society, I remain aware of the sensitive and emotional nature of the legalization/decriminalization debate." "While the Veterans Equal Access Act has been introduced in the past, similar legislation has yet to be introduced during the current Congressional session. Please rest assured that I will keep your thoughts in mind as Congress considers policy options in the future."
