Carly Fiorina Position: Against Legalization, Favors States Rights
Fiorina lost her step-daughter to drug addiction, which is just terrible and so her stance is deeply personal. She is against the legalization of marijuana, but supports a states decision to choose on its own. Fiorina told reporters after her speech at the Western Conservative Summit, “I would also very quickly add that I think the legalization of marijuana is a very bad idea. I think it’s misleading to young people in particular when we tell them smoking pot is like drinking a beer. It is not.” She has also said when she was battling breast cancer her doctor advised her against using cannabis so its safe to assume that she’s against medical marijuana.
