Sen. Jason Carter on Marijuana as Medicine

Do you support medical marijuana in Georgia including the implementation of Georgia’s existing medical marijuana research law?

I tend to be a Libertarian on issues like this.  I do think it would have to be a carefully crafted piece of legislation with respect to medical marijuana to ensure that there are no unforeseen consequences.   As a general matter, if we can structure something that we think is viable, I would have no problem with it.  With respect to the research, I would need to know more.  My assumption is that there has been a giant amount of research done already, since the eighties, and I would want to know what the costs and benefits would be toward funding additional research.  One of the things you will find about me as an elected official, and hopefully as Governor, I will listen to facts and will look at data and will make decisions based on that and not based on rigid ideology.
