    Comments

    “While I have personal concerns about recreational marijuana use, I have long held that the voters of Washington state should have the right to pass initiatives and match our state’s policies with their priorities. In a time of constrained budgets, it makes sense to allow states to make hard choices and allocate law enforcement resources as they see fit. I understand and share some of the concerns expressed about our nation’s drug policy, and its effects on civil liberties, privacy, limited budgets, and courts and prisons. These issues certainly should remain a part of the nation’s ongoing drug policy debate, and I always consider these views when the Senate addresses drug issues.” 6/8/2013 (Link)

    “Washington state’s U.S. Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell wrote to the Department of Justice Tuesday, asking for answers on Washington state’s legalization of recreational marijuana. The Democratic senators, along with five Democratic members of the House representing Washington state, urged U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to avoid preempting the state’s new marijuana law. They also asked him not to prosecute anyone in the state who is acting in compliance with Washington’s marijuana law.” 7/16/2013 (Link)

    “I think that again the president gave an executive order saying that these businesses could use these banks allowing the banks to go ahead and take money from these businesses as recreational pot stores. I have no problem at all with medical marijuana as long as it’s regulated and prescribed by a doctor and you can buy it at a pharmacy like other drugs we provide to people that help the conditions they might have. I think that the law in Washington, if people really sat down and took a look at it, it’s not a very well thought out law. I think you can see that in the way it’s being unrolled in a very slow, methodical, and careful way because there are a lot of unknowns in this law and I think there are a lot of hidden costs in this law, which you and I have gone over before. I have a lot of concerns about how it affects first responders and how they’re going to monitor how long the chemical stays in your system.” 3/24/2015 (Link)
