The war on drugs has hit black and brown Virginians the hardest, so when the chance to correct this wrong came up, I had to act. I was proud to vote for the decriminalization of marijuana during the 2019 session and then voting for full simple legalization for adults this session. However that isn’t enough, once we have legalization we have to expunge those who are currently incarcerated and set the record straight.
