Who Will You Vote For? Part 2. Attorney General

RIPAC cannot endorse candidates but we did interview the candidates for AG.  The AG is the chief law enforcement official in the state and has a profound impact on the MMj Program.  Here are the responses from the two candidates:

Dawson Hodgson, Republican challenger

Strongly supports medical use of cannabis and the MMj Program

Supports compassion centers

Supports patients and caregivers growing

Open to expanding the number of compassion centers

Strongly supports the idea of co-ops with 4-8 cardholders growing as long as they are regulated

When he learned of problems with local building inspectors refusing to approve non-residential co-ops, said that he would like to provide leadership in setting the correct tone for local inspectors.

 Peter Kilmartin, Democratic incumbent

Strongly supports medical use of cannabis and the MMj Program

Supports compassion centers

Supports patients and caregivers growing

Open to expanding number of compassion centers

​May be open to regulating larger co-ops but wants to assess the impact of new co-op law first (he proposed the new co-op law which was passed by the legislature)

Acknowledged problems with inspectors regarding inspections of non-residential co-ops and believes that more education is needed
