Comment:
The “War on Drugs” has been a total failure.  It has cost tax payers money, has caused our prison system to be overloaded, and has permanently affected the employability of many just for having possessed drugs.  Various states have legalized it with decreased violent crime, and increased state revenue.   According to our founding documents, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”  Yet currently the Government seems to ignore this acknowledgement.  I will oppose any regulation that limits any of our rights.

Comments:

I am running for a federal office (U.S. House of Representatives). My official position in terms of federal policy is to legalize industrial hemp, legalize medical marijuana and CBD products, and decriminalize marijuana for recreational use (allowing states to fully legalize if they choose).  If marijuana is decriminalized federally, I would personally support full legalization in Idaho.
