“This MORE Act would grant the marijuana industry unfettered access to our nation’s youth by allowing the sale of edibles and flavored marijuana vapes, and permitting marijuna businesses to be located within 1,000 feet of schools, daycares, private kindergartens, public parks, and recreational facilities.” (2022)

"Crime rate in CO has increase 11xs faster than the rest of the nation since the legalization of marijuana (Mitchell, 2017), with the CO Bureau of Investigation reporting an 8.3% increase in property crimes and 18.6% increase in violent crimes (CBI, 2017). #DrugFreeFriday" 8/3/2018

“Toxicology reports in Colorado are showing that marijuana found present in adolescent suicide victims has increased since legalized recreational marijuana. Drugs are contributing to our youth suicide epidemic & shouldn’t be seen as part of the solution” (7/13/18)

"Marijuana use is ultimately harmful to young people and society. Studies have shown that it's an entry-level drug... the number one reason that teenagers are in recovery programs is because of addiction to marijuana. So it is a very troubling thing to see that states are approving this and encouraging this use. I think the federal government should be very tough on it and not be helpful to the states and should say, 'this is still illegal in our minds' and try to do everything possible to put up strong disincentives for them to move forward in that way." 10/14/2014
