Comments

Regarding claims others have made that he wants to legalize cannabis for recreational use, Raul Labrador "calls it a persistent lie. The Republican candidate for Idaho Attorney General has battled some within his own party for years who claim he wants to legalize drugs and isn’t supportive of law enforcement."

Labrador opposes legalizing marijuana either for medical or recreational use." I have not seen any evidence, any science that tells me that should be the way that we do it," he said. However, he does favor changing sentencing laws, including getting rid of mandatory minimums for non-violent offenses, and is a proponent of alternatives to incarceration such as drug courts."I don't think we should make a habit of putting people in jail for recreational use of marijuana ... You're putting them with a different kind of criminal. They advance in their criminality." (September 2017)
