Position on Marijuana Decriminalization

"From the very beginning of my campaign, I announced I was in favor of decriminalization of simple possession of marijuana charges in the Commonwealth. As former prosecutor, I realize that is insane to be branding people a criminal because they use marijuana. Accordingly, I intend to introduce legislation in the 2020 General Assembly Session to decriminalize marijuana in the Commonwealth." ~ Email statement to VA NORML.
