Jill Stein on Drugs
Green Party presidential nominee; Former Challenger for MA Governor
I support legalization of marijuana
I also support legalization of marijuana, ending war, and other bread-and-butter concerns for young people. This is a constituency that is just itching for a platform of this sort. Source: Interview with Steve Horn of Truthout.org , Jan 29, 2012
Marijuana is dangerous because it’s illegal, not vice-versa
A: We wouldn’t remove all laws against all drug use. Marijuana is a drug that is dangerous because it’s illegal. It isn’t illegal because it’s dangerous. There are drugs in use that are far more harmful than marijuana–such as alcohol. Legalize marijuana and the dangers go away. Regulate it so that children can’t buy it on the street corner.
Q: What about other drugs?
A: Drug use is a public health issue, not a criminal or moral issue. It should not be dealt with in the criminal justice system, but primarily as a public health issue. Source: 2011 OnTheIssues interview with Jill Stein , Dec 21, 2011
Bring marijuana sales under a legal regulatory framework
It’s time to get rid of the black market and bring marijuana sales under a legal regulatory framework. In this way, we can staunch the flow of money to illegal drug networks, generate new funds for our communities, improve public safety, and create new jobs in growing hemp for food and fiber.
As Governor I will appoint a Cannabis Reform Commission to investigate the best way to bring marijuana sales under the new regulatory framework. Source: 2010 Gubernatorial Campaign website jillstein.org, “Issues” , Sep 29, 2010

It’s time to take marijuana off the black market, end crime and violence related to marijuana trafficking, stop wasting money and ruining lives by prosecuting victimless crimes, reduce prison populations, increase tax revenue, allow sick people their medicine, let farmers grow marijuana and hemp, and give responsible adults their freedom.
