"To protect workers, promote racial justice and spur economic growth, Congress must pass the MORE Act,” Strickland said. “Recent robberies across the South Sound prove that the MORE Act isn’t just about legalizing marijuana, it is about protecting retailers and their workers. I am proud to have helped move this bipartisan legislation through the House and urge the Senate to swiftly pass this bill, sending it to President Biden’s desk for his signature.” (4/1/22)

"The criminal justice aspect is so important here,” Strickland said. "We want to make sure that people who have been charged or are serving time for offenses get those records expunged. We want to make sure we’re protecting people and they’re not being discriminated against.” (2/22/22)

"To create a society that is just and secure, we must restore the lives of  those convicted on marijuana-related charges,” Strickland said. “Cannabis being listed under Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act has impacted our local and Tribal businesses, families, communities of color, and countless residents across the South Sound. It is time for Congress to decriminalize marijuana by passing the bipartisan MORE Act to promote racial justice, spur economic growth, and protect retailers and their employees.” (2/2/22)
