Where do the 2017 candidates stand on marijuana policy reform?

 

Virginia NORML is asking all candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and the House of Delegates two questions:

1. Do you support the decriminalization of simple marijuana possession? Decriminalization means substituting civil penalties for criminal prosecution, think “fines not crimes.”

2. Do you support doctor-recommended medical cannabis? Recent polling by Quinnipiac shows 92% of Virginians do.

Remember, Virginia does not have ballot initiatives. The only time you will ever “vote on marijuana” in Virginia is when you cast your ballot for lawmakers that will support reform legislation once elected. Vote wisely.
