Marijuana Informational Hearing

April 8, 2016

I hosted an Informational Hearing at the Legislative Office Building to start a public conversation about the legalization of marijuana for recreational use. My colleague, Rep. Toni Walker, co-hosted the hearing with me, along with several panelists that presented their views from each of their areas of expertise and concern.

State Rep. Dan Pabon, a lawmaker from Colorado who championed similar legislation in his state provided us with meaningful insight as we talked about the hurdles, the challenges, and the impact of legalization. I will continue pushing and addressing this issue, until we can pass a measure that will legalize marijuana in the state.
