D- Ben Cline (R - VA) DECRIMINALIZE

Holds office U.S. House District 6

Candidate in race for U.S. House District 6

Position on Medical Marijuana

Delegate Ben Cline sponsored the 2018 Let Doctors Decide legislation HB1251 to expand access to Virginia’s medical cannabis program to all patients.

“Medical cannabis oil has been proven to effectively and safely help patients manage pain,” said Delegate Cline. “With Virginia fighting a growing opioid crisis, this is smart legislation to reduce dependence on addictive narcotics. By expanding the ability to recommend medical cannabis oil, we are giving doctors the freedom to make a decision based on the most up to date research and data, just as they do for any other medication they prescribe. I am pleased to see this bill pass the General Assembly, and I look forward to the Governor signing it into law.”
