B+ Jill Vogel (R - VA) DECRIMINALIZE MEDICAL USE

Holds office State Senate District 27

Comments

“We are living in the Dark Ages in how we address marijuana in Virginia,” said state Sen. Jill Vogel, R-Upperville, who plans to reintroduce a bill increasing medical marijuana use and is supportive of reducing criminal penalties for recreational use. “We’ve had Prohibition and we’ve been down this road before. What you create is a black market and it’s been really detrimental in a lot of ways.”

Vogel said Tuesday that she plans to reintroduce a bill expanding use of a marijuana oil that doesn’t get people high, but can help reduce pain from diseases like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), cancer, Crohn’s disease, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis. The bill passed last year in the state Senate, but died in the House of Delegates. 1/10/18
