What Supporters Are Saying

“Question 2 gives Nevada an opportunity to break free of years of failed public policy when it comes to marijuana prohibition. I believe that a legal, regulated recreational marijuana market will help eliminate a significant portion of the criminal drug trade while providing significant new tax revenue to our state. It will also allow us to reform our approach to drug use within the criminal justice system and finally begin to focus on treating drug addiction like the disease that it is. I will be voting Yes on Question 2 and I urge other Nevadans to do so as well.”

Aaron Ford
Aaron Ford State Senate Minority Leader

"I am proud to be among the elected officials who have come together to call for an end to marijuana prohibition in Nevada. Our collective support is further evidence that change in our marijuana laws is inevitable. But there is no need to wait. We should change our laws now so law enforcement can focus on serious crimes. We should change our laws now so consumers can have access to products that are tested and labeled. And we should change our laws now so we can all benefit from the elimination of the underground marijuana market."

Tick Segerblom
Tick Segerblom State Senator

“No matter how you look at the issue of marijuana, it is clear that we will be better off regulating it like alcohol, rather than having it sold in the underground market. There will be tax revenue from sales, tax revenue from businesses, and tax revenue from employees. None of that is generated when marijuana is sold illegally. Best of all, we can use this revenue to address critical public funding needs in the state.”

Patricia Spearman
Patricia Spearman State Senator

“I believe that our tax dollars ought to be spent on improving our schools – not building new jail cells. Legalizing marijuana will not only help improve Nevada's justice system, but add a new tax revenue source to our state that will increase teacher pay, reduce class sizes, and build new schools. By ending the prohibition on marijuana, we can also help end the cycle of non-violent young offenders going to jail instead of college. By creating smart regulations, we can strengthen the relationship between our communities and law enforcement. I plan to vote Yes on Question 2 because I believe it is a critical step in reforming our criminal justice system to focus on violent offenders and career criminals instead of on non-violent users who need rehabilitation and treatment.”
