As the House Democratic Whip, Congressman Hoyer is the second-ranking member of the House Democratic Leadership of the United States. He is charged with mobilizing the party vote on important legislation, shaping House Democrats’ legislative priorities, and delivering the Democratic message.
Recently, Hoyer sat down for a video interview with Sharon Bell from TheBayNet.com where he discussed his support for medical marijuana. Given how powerful he is, it is a good sign that he is in favor of de-scheduling or re-scheduling marijuana if that’s what the voters want.
If this were to happen, more medical marijuana research could get funded.
While Hoyer says he doesn’t smoke because it is bad for his health to do so. That being said, there’s a handful of other cannabis consumption methods that do not have the negative side effects that come along with combustion.
Alongside that statement, he noted that he’s not so sure on recreational marijuana just yet. Either way, his support for medical marijuana is a step in the right direction.
