Virginia’s gubernatorial primary is less than one month away, and MPP has put together a guide on where the candidates stand on marijuana policy issues. Please check out our voter guide so you can be informed on this critical topic before heading to the polls.
We put together a candidate survey and asked each campaign for governor to give us their thoughts on three issues:
medical marijuana; and
taxing and regulating cannabis for adults age 21 and over.
Based on their responses to our survey, along with any public statements they have made, we assigned each candidate a letter grade, which you can check out here.
In addition to the governor’s race, each of Virginia’s 100 seats in the House of Delegates will be on the ballot this year. Please consider asking the candidates from your district where they stand on these issues before casting your vote. Let us know if you get any responses.
