David Zuckerman on Drugs

 

 


Provide needle exchanges, overdose prevention medication

The opioid epidemic in Vermont is harming our communities and our economy. We must treat all Vermonters with the dignity and respect they deserve. Harm-reduction services, from needle exchanges to access to overdose prevention medication, are crucial. We must make life-saving medication-assisted treatments such as methadone and buprenorphine free to any Vermonter who needs them. Medication-assisted treatment should not be criminalized.

Legalize marijuana, starting with two ounces at a time

In January 2014, Zuckerman introduced legislation to legalize up to 2 ounces of marijuana at any one time, including a $50-per-ounce tax in order to cover the costs of regulation.˙ As of July 2013,˙Vermont˙law allows possession of one ounce of marijuana, and the state does not collect taxes on it. Zuckerman supported more revenue in order to deal with treatment and recovery for addicts in the state. "And like I said, if there's more revenue that we could then put toward treatment for those who are addicted to serious drugs then that would be a benefit," Zuckerman said in an interview.

Legalize marijuana

Mirroring Bernie Sanders, Zuckerman has championed a $15 minimum wage, instituting a wealth tax on Vermont's richest residents, legalizing marijuana, and taking strong action on climate change. While in the Legislature, he spearheaded legislation that made Vermont the first state in the nation to require food manufacturers to label products containing genetically modified ingredients.
