A+ Sheryl Cole (D - TX) LEGALIZE, TAX, AND REGULATE DECRIMINALIZE MEDICAL USE
Her response to Texas NORML during the primaries: “For far too long, communities that are primarily low-income people of color have been jailed and disenfranchised due to regressive marijuana policy - a description that disproportionately describes my district, HD 46, compared to the rest of the state. I applaud the local efforts in Travis County (and elsewhere) to make sure we aren’t ruining the lives of individuals for possessing marijuana, but we can do better at a state and federal level. While I do not believe that the legalization marijuana will solve all of our criminal justice issues, it is certainly progress and a necessary step. The additional tax revenue that can go towards our ailing education, healthcare, and transportation systems is also very welcomed.”  https://www.texasnorml.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/2018-Voter-Guide-v.FINAL-2.20.18.pdf
