Here’s Where Presidential Candidate Jay Inslee Stands on Cannabis
Washington Governor Jay Inslee is among the latest crop of Democrat politicians looking to retake the White House in 2020 with a presidential bid.
It has been much-reported that climate change is expected to be a central policy concern for Inslee’s candidacy. He has gone on record stating that it is not just an environmental issue, but one that affects national security, and economic growth. He also called President Trump’s policies on wind energy ‘moronic.’
While those issues are likely going to be his top priorities, cannabis legalization won’t be very far down on his presidential to-do list. After announcing his 2020 campaign, Governor Inslee listed marijuana reform alongside gun control as one of the biggest legislative issues he intends to tackle as president.
“We’ve legalized marijuana,” he announced, referring to the state’s 2012 decision to legalize recreational cannabis. “It’s about time we do it nationwide.”
