    Where does David Lewis stand on medical cannabis? I noticed he is for reducing regulatory burdens that limit small business and believes North Carolina is a land of opportunity, so would that mean he supports medical cannabis? Regulations are what keep medical cannabis illegal in North Carolina and allowing medical cannabis would create millions for the state and creates thousands of small businesses. He also believes that, “responsibility of government is to make sure each citizen has the opportunity to develop to the fullest extent of their abilities…” What about those that require medical cannabis to reach their opportunity to develop their abilities to their fullest extent? With over 50% of the USA now having medical cannabis and over 75% of North Carolina citizens supporting medical cannabis, will David Lewis allow those citizens to reach their full abilities by allowing medical cannabis?
