Government should not interfere in our personal lives and choices.
Clayton Tucker will be a strong voice for cannabis legalization in the Texas Senate.
The prohibition of cannabis has done more harm than good.
While Clayton recognizes there are many points of view concerning marijuana, he realizes that those who want to consume cannabis inevitably will, therefore we should regulate consumption with a strictly regulated state program for grow operations and state licensed dispensaries.
Fact: Alcohol and tobacco are more harmful to the human body than marijuana.
Fact: The prohibition of alcohol created the mafia and organized crime, just as the prohibition of cannabis fuel the cartels. Legalizing marijuana would harm the black market and lower crime.
Fact: Marijuana is an important medicine for veterans and others suffering from illness.
Clayton Tucker supports full-plant medical marijuana to everyone who needs it.
END CANNABIS PROHIBITION
The prohibition of alcohol created the mafia and other organized crime. The prohibition of alcohol didn't prevent crime, rather it created crime. The prohibition of cannabis is no different. Clayton Tucker strongly supports the legalization of cannabis.
Similar with how we regulate alcohol and tobacco products, Clayton believes we should regulate the consumption consumption with a strictly regulated state program for grow operations and state licensed dispensaries.
2ND AMENDMENT with MMJ
Clayton Tucker knows that people with chronic pain and/or mental health diagnoses are not statistically more prone to violent behavior, and should not be under greater scrutiny for seeking treatment. In fact, they are more likely to be victims of violence, and access to treatment is essential.
Given these facts, Clayton does not want law abiding Texans with Medical Marijuana licenses to be automatically barred from buying firearms.
4TH AMENDMENT (Search & Seizures)
Clayton Tucker recognizes that the War on Drugs has lead to the weakening of Texan's 4th Amendment right against unreasonable search and seizures. Clayton will seek for ways Texas can adequately protect our rights, including lobbying the federal government for change.
