Catherine Cortez Masto on Drugs

 

 


Legalize medical marijuana, and eventually recreational use

Q: On Marijuana: Decriminalize and/or legalize marijuana?

Heck: Supports medical marijuana. Opposes recreational.

Cortez Masto: Supports medical marijuana. Believes recreational legalization will happen, but is premature until more regulatory infrastructure in place.

I do not see a benefit in our state in legalizing marijuana

Notably, Rep. Joe Heck has voted in favor of House amendments to protect state medical cannabis laws from federal interference and for an amendment to stop the Department of Justice from interfering with any state marijuana law, including those covering recreational use. He also co-sponsored standalone legislation to improve access to medical cannabis and to allow military veterans to get medical marijuana recommendations through the Department of Veterans Affairs. He also signed on to bills to allow marijuana businesses to bank and be treated more fairly under the tax code.

Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto, a former Nevada attorney general, admitted that she "tried marijuana once or twice at parties" but also voted against the state's 2000 ballot initiative that legalized medical cannabis. On broader reform, she said, "I do not see a benefit in our state in legalizing marijuana." (Her husband is a security advisor for a group of medical cannabis dispensaries in Arizona.)

Combat the use and distribution of methamphetamines

As the chief law enforcement officer of Nevada, Masto worked closely with law enforcement, treatment providers and community advocates to combat the use and distribution of methamphetamines. She helped pass new laws to crackdown on meth manufacturers and restrict the sale of materials used to make the drug.
