Congressional Candidate Goodman Supports U.S. House Bill for Fed. Gov’t. to Back Off Marijuana Enforcement
Washington State Congressional Candidate Roger Goodman released a statement in support of legislation introduced today by Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) and Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) to limit the federal government’s role in marijuana enforcement and give states the right decide how to regulate marijuana.
“I am really pleased to see that Congress has finally come around with a proposal for the federal government to back off and allow states to regulate marijuana in a rational manner. I understand this is just a first step and a lot of work remains to tip the balance in favor of responsible marijuana policy.
“With the opportunity to serve in Congress myself, I will looking forward to championing marijuana reform as I have done successfully in the WA state legislature. We are now at crucial point both culturally and politically on this important issue. Let’s see how this current proposal fares in Congress. In the meanwhile, I will continue to exert leadership on this issue to promote sensible marijuana policy on the national level.”
