Kalan Haywood campaign statements on marijuana
August 2018: We can’t forget to address our broken criminal justice system. We have too many people trapped in a cycle of crime, incarceration, and recidivism. We need to legalize marijuana, expunge criminal records and end the failed truth-in-sentencing law, which prevents parole.
“Especially medical marijuana. I have an uncle who is suffering from cancer…that could help ease some of his pain.”
“The other states around us have legalized marijuana use, and now we’re on an island.”
“The conversation around marijuana has to involve decriminalizing marijuana as well.”
