Andrew Gillum on Drugs
Marijuana isn't a gateway drug
Q: Do you support or oppose the statement, "Marijuana is a gateway drug"?
A: Oppose--Mayor Gillum believes that we need to legalize marijuana and end
the harsh penalties for low-level possession. He wants to invest that revenue in our public schools, students, and teachers, including a pay raise for all public school teachers and staff.

Focus on opioid epidemic as medical issue
Comprehensively attack the opioid crisis is part of my plan for Floridians' health care by creating a statewide task force of law enforcement, first responders, and mental health and patient advocates. Restore the $11 million cut in state mental health
funding, create opioid intervention courts, and work with our Congressional delegation to secure more federal funding. We cannot repeat the mistakes of the past in addressing this deadly drug crisis.
