Politician Info
A Vivian Watts (D - VA) LEGALIZE, TAX, AND REGULATE DECRIMINALIZE MEDICAL USE

Virginia NORML has endorsed Delegate Watts.

Holds office State House District 39

Candidate in race for State House District 39 on Tuesday, November 2, 2021

Position on Marijuana Legalization

I support all of the critical, on-going efforts for Virginia to get it right in creating a well-regulated market to protect adult consumers and public safety while fostering appropriate competition and protecting minors. It is important that standards of identity are addressed as effectively as possible absent federal action.

Automatic expungement of non-violent marijuana possession misdemeanor charges is central to restorative justice and not handicapping the full professional and social potential of each individual.

Position on Medical Marijuana

A significant body of research supports the medical value of THC oil, as well as the value of smoking marijuana in professional treatment of mental illness.
