Guess I need to find the phone number for his office....
One of his concerns is "what message do we send our children?" if we legalize. I would say the message is we'll no longer waste public resources and destroy lives jailing people for using or distributing an intoxicant far less harmful than those currently legal: alcohol and tobacco.
I smoked pot in HS and college with people who went on to be high powered hedge funders, lawyers, doctors, and one who was a GWB appointed US District Attorney. Law enforcement has destroyed far more lives than cannabis has. And we haven't even touched on the race and class bias in that enforcement.
