    "We're going to have a test case that will help us better understand what the effect of the legalization of marijuana is... For example, student test scores: are the test scores going up or are they going down?... There's no way in the world that I have the kind of experience that the President of the United States has with alcohol, marijuana and other hard drugs. He's got personal experience. I don't, with those kinds of very dangerous substances."

    "While I understand that medical marijuana has been decriminalized and in some states legalized, it is not legal in the state of Alabama. Personally, I don't support illegal drug use of any kind. I am open to looking at scientific data and research on the effects of medical marijuana use, and if someone I knew believed they needed this treatment, I would tell them to seek it in a state where medical marijuana use is legal."

    "However, the current debate to legalize marijuana is not based on medical need. Rather, it is nothing more than a ruse being used by a clandestine few, who prey upon those groups who believe the debate centers only upon marijuana as a potential medicine in order to create language that will ultimately become leverage to legalize hard drugs across the board, and wreak complete havoc on our society. I believe, just as the legalization of opium adversely impacted American society during the late 19th century, the legalization of marijuana and other illegal drugs would cause devastation to America's family and bring about serious danger within our nation's mechanized workforce. Legalizing marijuana would be a means of creating backdoor legislation for the legalization of many other very dangerous drugs. The compassionate answer to this debate is to grant greater access to the legitimate pharmaceutical drugs that have been proven effective in providing the relief and treatment essential to America's medical patients." 8/26/2004 (Link)
    "Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., doesn’t anticipate Congress will legalize any forms of marijuana, including medical. He said “the so-called medical forces” are trying to fully legalize the drug. He compared marijuana to opium, saying the legalization would destroy families. “Colorado is an example to the country, I believe, and if we look closely, we’ll probably be reticent about trying to stone the whole country,” Franks said. “I don’t think that the United States Congress is going to legalize recreational marijuana, notwithstanding the fact that sometimes it may appear that we’re all stoned on it.” 4/21/2015 (Link)

    "As a health care professional, I oppose Proposition 205 and the legalization of recreational marijuana as it would cause major public safety risks, endanger Arizona kids, and protect a commercial industry that profits from expanded drug use. This is a bad deal for our roads, our kids, and our economy," said U.S. Representative Paul Gosar. “Why would we allow Arizona to be Big Marijuana's next victim when we can point to the catastrophic impacts of legalized recreational marijuana in neighboring states? Colorado and other marijuana-friendly states have seen increased pot-related hospitalizations, youth usage, accidental ingestion, and marijuana-related DUIs. We can not let Big Marijuana make millions at Arizona's expense. I urge Arizonans to get the facts on legalized recreational marijuana and ask Arizonans to vote ‘no’ in November.” (9/14/2016) "Regardless of your feelings on States' Rights, medical marijuana or recreational marijuana, people should not be able to get high using hard-earned taxpayer money. The sole purpose of this bill is to prohibit marijuana from being purchased with federal welfare benefits. Taxpayers expect and deserve a lean, efficient government."

    "I am not by any stretch an enthusiast or fan of marijuana. I don't use it. I don't want any kids anywhere to use it; if I ever find one of my kids using it, they are in big trouble. But I just think we have to face reality. This criminalization policy has been a failure by absolutely any measure. And we've got to learn the lessons of [alcohol] prohibition, find better ways to manage this substance. My hope is that we can deal with this the way we have dealt with tobacco: It has never been criminalized, but we have done a great job of reducing tobacco use, and we haven't had to lock anyone up for selling or using it." 4/28/14 (Link)

    "As multiple states legalize marijuana across our nation, it is a huge waste of federal resources for the DEA to eradicate marijuana," said Congressman Lieu. "The federal government should focus its precious resources on other issues and let the states innovate in the cannabis field. I am proud to introduce this bipartisan bill along with Congressman Amash. 9/16/2015 (Link)
    "There is a growing, bipartisan consensus across the country that our marijuana policies must change. Despite the overwhelming support from scientists, doctors, and people across the nation for lessening restrictions on marijuana, the DEA still spends millions of dollars each year on domestic cannabis eradication. "In 2014 alone, the DEA arrested 6,310 people under its cannabis eradication program for growing marijuana plants. This is a ridiculous waste of precious federal resources, especially when multiple states and jurisdictions have already legalized marijuana.It is time for the federal government to stop making marijuana use or possession a federal crime." 6/4/2015 (Link)
    "My amendment redirects funding from the DEAs Cannabis Eradication/Suppression Program and funds programs to help child victims of domestic abuse, child abuse and sexual assault. We need to focus our resources where they are actually needed: standing up for children who have been victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault, not spending taxpayer dollars on going after people who grow marijuana plants." 6/4/2015 (Link)

    “This impressive vote,” said the California Republican, “is deeply gratifying. It shows the people’s representatives really can reflect the overwhelming sentiment of Americans to do the right thing. Too many patients, for too long, have suffered under a regime that encourages doctors to prescribe opiates rather than the cannabinoids they deem much safer and more effective. It’s the federal government and out-of-control Justice Department enforcers who have acted as the real gateway drug. The good news is that the House of Representatives just took away that deadly connection.” (Link)
    (Press- Release on the passing of his MMJ Bill) "The unintended consequence of marijuana prohibition was to force its cultivation and sale into the black market, which, as we now know, is ruled by the worst elements of humanity.

    "I've been a long-standing advocate for allowing states to make medical marijuana available to patients under a doctor's recommendation to alleviate painful suffering. A doctor's prescription is needed for a substance that is not otherwise legal. Doctors write prescriptions every day for that purpose, and they should be able to do so if their states allow it, in the case of medical marijuana. 6/15/2005 (Link)
    Last November, the citizens of the District of Columbia exercised their democratic rights and overwhelmingly voted to approve Initiative 71. I concur with the legal analysis of the District of Columbia and other Congressional leaders that the Omnibus spending bill passed in December does not repeal or block the implementation of this initiative. I said this in December, and reiterated my views in a meeting with Mayor Bowser earlier this month. It is very troubling that Republicans would threaten elected District officials for implementing the measure resoundingly passed by the District of Columbias voters. 2/25/2015 (Link)

    I support the leadership of Jared Polis, who has been a leader on this issue as well as other members.I understand some of the Republican members support the law now that is passed, even if they didn't before. But in any case, to answer your question, what is my position regarding the states that have medical marijuana or recreational marijuana as the law of their states: I think that has to be respected. I think tax and regulate. In order to do that, there has to be a level of respect for the fact, that if you are going to have recreational marijuana, someone is in business to do that and they have to have tax treatment in order for them to function as a business. 3/25/2013 (Link)
