State Sen. Eliot Shapleigh’s Statement On Push To Legalize Marijuana

“While debate on legalization is critical to better strategies and informed democracy, I do not believe legalization is the answer. We should reduce drug demand with better education and rehabilitation programs here in the U.S. and focus now on practical applications of “Beyond Merida ” to deal with violence in Juarez today. Presidents Obama and Calderon will make announcements in D.C. on May 19th that will positively impact our region. We have an historic opportunity to make good things happen.”
