Erin Meadors (Township Board – Jackson Township, Jackson County, Indiana)

Do you support the implementation of a medical cannabis program in Indiana to make cannabis legally available to patients for medical purposes?

I support the use of cannabis to treat medical conditions as it has been proven to treat a large variety of ailments.

Do you support the decriminalization of cannabis?

100 percent. The industrialization of the cannabis plant can stop the deforestation of Indiana and other states of this country. It can be used as an alternative in textile, infrastructure, housing, dietary supplements and medicine. The amount of money and the opportunity for jobs in Indiana with a natural product such as cannibals is vast, especially since almost 2.5 harvests of fully grown crops can be completed each year. That can set Indiana apart in jobs, economics, personal freedom, and medical choices. We can be the future of freedom if we look past the years of false propaganda pushed on us through years of prohibition.

Do you support the legalization of cannabis retail sales for personal use?

I believe that this product alone, one that has never caused the death of an individual, is a safe alternative to alcohol which is legal and has caused many issues. I also personally believe that I have no authority over another and cannot tell them what they can and can’t put into their body if they aren’t harming anyone.

Do you have any other statements you would like to make about cannabis?

I will be utilizing my role to ensure that resources won’t be used at the local level that push anticannabis propaganda. I will continue to work with leaders in my area to support our constitutional rights.

Do you have any other statements you would like to make about cannabis?

If elected as State Auditor, one of my first orders of business would be to make sure both the electorate and the legislature are aware of how much money is spent on enforcement, litigation, incarceration, and other social programs directed at non-violent drug offenses. There are many other constitutionally mandated expenses that should have a higher priority.

Jason Straw (Hamilton County Sheriff)

Do you support the implementation of a medical cannabis program in Indiana to make cannabis legally available to patients for medical purposes?

I fully support medical Cannabis for patients for medical purposes. I have seen it help save the life of several patients.

Do you support the decriminalization of cannabis?

I fully support decriminalization of cannabis. I see it as a way to decrease the number of citizens we are placing in jails. It should be regulated like alcohol especially since it is safer than alcohol. Americans should be free to relax how they want to relax as long as they are responsible about it. A regulated product is a safer product than a black-market product.

Do you support the legalization of cannabis retail sales for personal use?

Yes, because I would rather have it regulated and controlled like it is in 31 other states, than on the black market as it currently is in Indiana. Anything on the black market is far more dangerous than a product than is regulated.

Do you have any other statements you would like to make about cannabis?

I support my fellow veterans who support cannabis at a rate above 90% in some form either (Medical, legalize for personal use or further research to see the benefits)

Yes

Do you have any other statements you would like to make about cannabis?

Cannabis legalization must be combined with a reparation element that removes criminal records. We must combine this with free business training for those negatively affected by the drug war. above 90% in some form either (Medical, legalize for personal use or further research to see the benefits)
