“Baldwin, a longtime supporter of medical cannabis dating back to her days in the State Assembly and before will be facing the winner of the GOP primary. Her position has been consistently and strongly supportive and she has regularly cosponsored federal medical cannabis legislation in Congress.” 8/13/2012 (Link)

S. 1333: Therapeutic Hemp Medical Access Act of 2015

Comments

“What we can do is we can hold hearings to find out how it’s all working, to highlight the issues, highlight the problem, try and define the problems. So I think that’s what we should really do.” “I have no comment on that right now. That’s a relatively complex issue, dealing with state law and federal law and we’ve got these experiments — we’re not enforcing federal law,” said Johnson. “I guess right now I’m just sitting here watching the states’ experiment and seeing how that happens. If anything I’d want to use the committee to hold a hearing, see how it’s working.” Johnson said he is also personally against the recreational use of marijuana but believes it’s an issue that should be determined by states. However, he did not indicate whether the same determination should be granted to the District. “I can’t support it myself because I think it sets a really bad example for young children,” Johnson said. “But states are doing that. Let the voters decide … Again, I like local control of those issues and then what we can do here in Congress is hold hearings, find out, how’s it working? What kind of problems are there?” 11/21/2014 (Link)
