My answers for the Cabarrus Magazine’s October Issue Candidates Profile…
Q: What is the single biggest issue facing Cabarrus County? What is your plan to address that issue?
A: The opioid crisis. I call for the county to declare a public health emergency and immediately decriminalize cannabis (marijuana) in the county. In states with access to safe, legal cannabis, opioid-related deaths have dropped at least 25 percent. Cabarrus County should be on the cutting edge of compassion and defend its citizens’ God-given right to self-medicate safely.
