Comments

"While I have personal concerns about recreational marijuana use, I have long held that the voters of Washington state should have the right to pass initiatives and match our state's policies with their priorities. In a time of constrained budgets, it makes sense to allow states to make hard choices and allocate law enforcement resources as they see fit.

I understand and share some of the concerns expressed about our nation's drug policy, and its effects on civil liberties, privacy, limited budgets, and courts and prisons. These issues certainly should remain a part of the nation's ongoing drug policy debate, and I always consider these views when the Senate addresses drug issues."
