“We’re going to have a test case that will help us better understand what the effect of the legalization of marijuana is… For example, student test scores: are the test scores going up or are they going down?… There’s no way in the world that I have the kind of experience that the President of the United States has with alcohol, marijuana and other hard drugs. He’s got personal experience. I don’t, with those kinds of very dangerous substances.”

“While I understand that medical marijuana has been decriminalized and in some states legalized, it is not legal in the state of Alabama. Personally, I don’t support illegal drug use of any kind. I am open to looking at scientific data and research on the effects of medical marijuana use, and if someone I knew believed they needed this treatment, I would tell them to seek it in a state where medical marijuana use is legal.” (Link)
