One of those issues will be to end the “war on drugs” and legalize marijuana, according to Serianni.
“I am really against the drug war. It is overtaxing the people, and nothing is being changed as a result. I want to see the legalization of marijuana so we can tax it and get distribution out of the hands of black market people. Those people are living in HUD housing, living off welfare, being protected by police as informants — while they are out selling drugs. We can see it in Storm Lake.”
Colorado and Washington have shown that legalization of marijuana can be controlled and made profitable for the public, he said.
