    Decriminalization and legalization of the production, distribution, and sale of marijuana for personal use is the right path forward for the State of Michigan. Legalization will add another choice crop for farmers, provide an alternative to long term pain medication, and will expand Michigan's economy, resulting in additional jobs and increased tax revenue.

    I support medical use of marijuana because it may curb use of addictive opioids, however I do not support irresponsible recreational use. To often teenage and young adults indulge in marijuana use that impair human development and expected functionality.

    I would never smoke. I hate smoke. Do not smoke around me. However, I consider the war on drugs to be a failed endeavor.

    I believe that legalizing marijuana will simply recognize a fact of life for many people, including the increasing use of medical marijuana by senior citizens to alleviate pain. Another result of legalization, although not the main reason for my position, will be the increased tax revenue and safety benefits that legalization will bring.
