Position on Marijuana Legalization

Lundberg said Tennessee has already legalized cannabis oil for medical purposes. He said additional efforts to legalize marijuana “is being pushed by people who really want to smoke marijuana.”

Given the negative consequences of its legalization in states like Colorado — where he said cannabis has resulted in one of the highest rates in the nation for marijuana use among teens — Lundberg said he is “not a big fan of marijuana.”
