Gretchen Whitmer on Drugs

 

 


Supports marijuana legalization for adult recreational use

Q: Marijuana: Support or oppose MI legalization initiative, Proposal 1?

Bill Schuette (R): Concerned legalization will increase youth access, but will respect voters' will. Led campaign against medical marijuana in 2008 but now supports with proper controls.

Gretchen Whitmer (D): Supports legalization for adult recreational use & expungement & exoneration of cannabis-related criminal histories. Endorsed 2008 marijuana initiative.

Addicts need treatment, not punishment

Expand treatment and recovery services that help our family members and neighbors who are suffering from addiction. Invest in treatment courts to ensure access to the resources we need to treat addiction, including diversion and alternative sentencing. Hold physicians and drug companies accountable because Michigan has more annual opioid prescriptions than people, and we cannot allow pharmaceutical companies to continue perpetuating the crisis with immunity.
