“I believe our society doesn’t need more drugs because, like every Nebraska parent, I want what is best for my children. At the same time, I generally believe that contentious issues should be handled, whenever possible, by states rather than federal bureaucracies. This policy discussion is more complicated than the current debate often suggests because Congress has passed domestic drug laws to fulfill international treaties. As Nebraskans consider these issues, we should pay close attention to the emerging data on health and safety from states like Colorado and examine the increased burden on Nebraska’s law enforcement.” September 2014

“I do not support legalization of marijuana,” said U.S. Sen. Deb Fischer during a listening session at the Keystone Business Center Tuesday. Sen. Fischer was responding to a question from an area resident curious about her position on the subject. 8/27/2015 (Link)
Sen. Fischer said she met with law enforcement representatives throughout Nebraska, “and what they shared with me was eye opening.” She said marijuana coming over from Colorado was much more potent and available in a variety of forms, including cannabis infused candy such as gummy bears. “This is dangerous for kids. I’m opposed to it,” said Sen. Fischer, reiterating her opposition to legalizing the drug. Sen. Fischer said it wasn’t uncommon for laws to be ignored but it was especially upsetting to her when it was being done by a state. “Colorado is ignoring federal law,” said Sen. Fischer. August 2015
