Holds office State Senate District 30
The prohibition on marijuana has failed. It has negative life-long concequences including loss of custody, housing, and employment. Additionally the prohibition on marijuana has dispraportionately effected people of color.
I support legalization. We must be careful about how we deal with the cash business, where it is sold, a taxation plan, child access prevention, and the ability of small and medium farmers to compete.
The prohibition on marijuana has failed, and its criminalization has negative, life long impacts, especially for communities of color. I have introduced legislation to decriminalize marijuana since 2015. I passed legislation to end the automatic suspension of drivers licenses for simple possession in 2018.
Cannabis has proven health benefits and it should both be legal and be able to be prescribed to patients by physicians.
