I support the end of incarceration for non-violent drug offenders.  I stand behind funding for recovery, treatment, and integration programs for residents with addiction.  I believe in the full decriminalization of cannabis and understand that the WV legislature lags far behind the citizens of the state when it comes to support for cannabis reform.  Polls taken recently have pegged support for cannabis legalization nationally at between 54 and 61 percent (Christopher Ingraham, Washington Post).  It is clear that the voters’ opinions concerning cannabis policy reform have shifted significantly over the past decade, but the attitude of our state and federally elected officials have not progressed in a similar manner.
