  1. Do you think we are winning the War on Drugs?

    No, we need to shift our focus from law enforcement to prevention and treatment.

  2. Do you support legislation to allow patients under a doctor's supervision to use marijuana for medical conditions?


  3. Do you favor a legal distinction between marijuana and hard drugs?


  4. What is your position on the use of alcohol and tobacco?

    Other: Alcohol is, by far, the most abused drug in this country. It is most responsible for domestic violence and deaths in comparison to other drugs. Tobacco has been taken on, alcohol should be next.

  5. Do you think Congress should establish a blue-ribbon commission to evaluate national drug policy?


  6. Are you interested in participating in the discussion and development of drug policy?

    Not sure.

    Our war on drugs is a failure. I am in favor of sweeping, measureable changes in the war on drugs so we have an idea if we are making any progress. I do not believe in mandatory sentences for drug offenders if that means releasing violent criminals from jail. As for developing drug policy, I would prefer to leave that in the hands of people who are strongly committed to that specific topic. My areas of expertise are economics and the environment. I would be qualified to develop those policies.
