Candidate in race for Lieutenant Governor on Tuesday, November 2, 2021

Position on Marijuana Legalization

“Let me tell you, we have a Lt. Governor currently who gave us recreational marijuana – it’s gonna destroy us. I had to let somebody go who worked for me, found out he was on marijuana, you can’t work for me, you’re gonna destroy somebody’s home, you’re gonna crash, it’s gonna decimate us, because marijuana is a gateway drug…There is no hope in that, there is no future.” 7/12/21
