Cannabis Reform

Since 1973 when Oregon became the first state in the nation to decriminalize cannabis, Earl has led the charge on cannabis reform. In 2017 he founded the Congressional Cannabis Caucus which brings together members to discuss and learn about the need to rationalize the federal government’s archaic cannabis policies. Earl supports:

Decriminalizing cannabis nationwide and investing in communities most impacted by the failed war on drugs.

Reform our criminal justice system and sentencing laws, including ending mandatory minimums and the unconstitutional practice of civil asset forfeiture.

Allowing state-legal dispensaries to access simple banking services and tax benefits.

Ending the VA’s prohibition on helping veterans access medical marijuana to treat PTSD, anxiety, depression and other chronic conditions.

Removing cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act and creating a federal framework to tax and regulate cannabis.
