A: Strongly opposes. Sensible approach to marijuana policy instead of prohibition.
I believe it is time to remove marijuana from schedule I and place it among the group of schedule V drugs that can be sold over-the-counter pursuant to age verification. Doing this will allow the states to tax and regulate marijuana as they see fit. This will create a much needed revenue stream for states across the country.
Hemp had been a part of our history dating back to Washington and Jefferson, who both grew hemp. The production of hemp was halted in the US with passage of the Marijuana Tax Act in 1937.
Hemp can be grown organically. Hemp produces more pulp per acre than timber on a sustainable basis, and can be used for every quality of paper. Eco-friendly hemp can replace most toxic petrochemical products. This will allow the Alabama Farmer to move into the future and insure a healthy farm economy for all Alabamians.
