Chris Vance on Drugs

 

 


Keep existing Washington state law on legal marijuana

GOP candidate Chris Vance has staked out moderate positions on immigration, supporting the so-called Gang of Eight Senate compromise that was killed by conservatives in the House. It would have improved border security while giving undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship. He has also pledged not to vote for federal laws that would overturn Washington state law on abortion rights, marriage equality and legal marijuana.

Respect state-based recreational use of marijuana

The recreational use of marijuana is legal in Washington, but illegal under federal law. State and federal officials have reached agreements to allow the will of Washington's voters to be carried out. In the Senate, I will respect those arrangements.

Not running to change laws on marijuana

[Democrats labeled him a "partisan extremist"; so] Vance says he's not running to change laws on abortion, same-sex marriage or marijuana. Instead, he says his top priority is debt-reduction in the spirit of Obama's bipartisan commission on fiscal reform Vance says, "It is still the in my view the blueprint of what we need to do: we need to cap discretionary spending, we need pro-growth tax reform and we need to make changes in Social Security and Medicare in order to save Social Security and Medicare."
