Holds office U.S. Senate
*S. 3269 Cannabidiol Research Expansion Act (2015-16)S.1200 - Secure And Fair Enforcement Banking Act of 2019
"I have a real concern for states' rights... I am concerned that just because marijuana is illegal under federal law, that we're just going to ignore what states do and send law enforcement in there to enforce the federal law... I hate to see a great deal of law enforcement resources spent on things like the possession and use of marijuana when we have murder cases, armed robbery cases, things like that that go unsolved... It was also my feeling as a prosecutor. I found more important things to do... We have spent...hundreds of billions of dollars on this so called 'war on drugs.' Well, we've lost."
