Marijuana use has been an issue in Virginia and will continue. I have and continue to fight for the decriminalization of marijuana. Unfortunately, there are too many elected officials who refuse to acknowledge the economic impact marijuana arrests have on our community. One major factor is that marijauna is not a drug that kills, unlike alcohol or herion and other drugs. I will continue to fight for this change until it is done. With a change in legislators, we can get there. (Advance video to 4:06 where I begin to speak).
