Marijuana Laws

Marijuana prohibition is a failed policy. Most people are now  in favor of reforming federal and state marijuana laws. It’s not hard to see why.

  • Sick patients are unable to access beneficial medical marijuana treatment. Marijuana has the potential to relieve chronic pain as well as opioids but without the addictive properties.

  • Current laws waste billions of dollars criminalizing marijuana users, even for low-level offenses.

  • African Americans and Latinos are arrested more frequently for marijuana even though white people use marijuana at similar rates.

  • Prohibition creates an illegal marijuana market that benefits organized crime, drug cartels and gangs.

  • As shown by states like Colorado where marijuana is legal, tax revenues from legal sales are a boost to state coffers.

As your congressman, my priorities regarding marijuana laws include:

  • Enacting legislation that provides and protects access to medical marijuana.

  • The elimination of criminal penalties for the adult use and personal cultivation of marijuana.

  • The creation of a legal regulatory market for the responsible production and distribution of marijuana to adults.
