In case you’ve never seen one, my friend Rachal is holding her Georgia Medical Marijuana card. I know too many people and families affected by the subject to not have a firm opinion on the matter. I fully support Medical Marijuana in the state of Georgia because I can see the positive difference it makes in the quality of life of many families I personally know.
Currently, the law only allows for very few conditions to obtain a card. I would seek to broaden the list of illnesses that can be treated with cannabis. Too many men and women who have proudly served our great nation suffer from PTSD or other lifelong service-related conditions. Yet, they are denied the dignity to step away from commonly prescribed psychoactive medications. According to testimony during house hearings on medicinal cannabis, it was stated that over 80% of all new heroin users started out on prescription opioids. I believe opioids, and their multitude of side effects, are a much larger problem than cannabis has ever been or will be. Why are we so quick to condemn cannabis when heroin is prescribed for a sprained ankle?
Legalization is not enough when there is no model for growth and cultivation in the state. The current situation allows for cannabis cardholders to legally possess THC oil but does not allow the cultivation and production of this medicine in the state. Thereby putting mothers and fathers at risk of criminal prosecution for the simple act of doing what is best for their own children. If one of my children needed medicine I would beg, borrow, and steal to get it. We must create an in-state program for the growth and cultivation of medicinal marijuana here in Georgia.
It is my belief that to deny any medicine to a suffering patient is evil.
It occurs to me that some people do not know I make my living in the firearms industry. I own Dobbs Defense, an NFA firearms manufacturing facility located right here in District 19. As such, my primary focus is to protect the second amendment along with all constitutional rights. I will never support any legislation that endangers or degrades the foundation of liberty laid out by our founding fathers.
Recent events have brought even our most trusted legislators to the negotiation table regarding our second amendment rights. Of all the amendments to the Constitution, the second amendment is the most important because it protects the rest. Therefore it is non-negotiable!
As your Representative I will hold the standard of bringing liberty back to the people by reducing the power of government over the individual.
I vow to NEVER give a single inch when it comes to your rights.
