Northam Backs Legal Marijuana

(Richmond, VA) — Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is backing legal marijuana. He said today Virginia has the chance to become the first state in the South to legalize the drug, but wants to make sure it is done right. Northam also says any legalization should involve equity, public health, and public safety. A new law went into effect this summer, which fines people 25 dollars if they are caught with less than an ounce of pot.
