With Election Day being looming, voters want to know where their potential senators stand on particular issues. One of those issues is marijuana. For some voters, where a candidate stands on legalization, decriminalization and reform is crucial.
The candidate for District 8, Ruth Ward, does not support recreational marijuana legalization, the Ledger Transcript says. Her opponent, Jenn Alford-Teaster, does support decriminalization but is undecided when it comes to legalization.
Here is where candidates in other districts stand:
- District 9, Jeanne Diestch (Democrat) – Supports legalization. She said, “I believe that cannabis should be a controlled substance, sold in liquor stores, like alcohol.”
- District 9, Denise Ricciardi (Republican) – does not support legalization
