Comments

Buchanan says more research into medical marijuana is warranted, and he does not support changing cannabis’ status.

“We support the position taken by Drug Free Manatee that more research is warranted,” Buchanan’s spokeswoman Sally Dionne said in statement to the Herald-Tribune. “In the meantime, Vern sponsored legislation to promote legal alternatives to opioids, greater research and prevention efforts, expanded access to treatment for those in recovery and better screening to catch illegal drugs before they enter the country.
