He has been a key vote in shooting down pro cannabis legislation. He is also on the health committee which is one of the two committees any cannabis legislation has to make it through. He seriously needs education. Fols in his district need to be active in making calls and trying to meet with him to educate.

C
Steve Southerland (R) DECRIMINALIZE
I spoke with Senator Southerland for via phone as his constituent and a medical cannabis patient. His voting record is a mixed bag on cannabis related things. He voted aye on SB0894. However he was an integral part of the Hemp bill SB2224 and worked hard to pass it, He is for Drug testing welfare recipients. He supports capital punishment for Drug Dealers. His district office number is actually his home phone so keep that in mind if that is where you call. He is not very educated on Cannabis as medicine but seems very open to learning. He supported and liked the original bill last year but did not support the changes made to it later. I wont say he is a lost cause, but he would be a better supporter if he was better educated.. He does not sit on the judiciary or health committees.
