Greg Steube on Drugs

 

 


Reschedule marijuana to allow further research

Steube introduced the Marijuana 1-to-3 Act of 2019 to reschedule marijuana from a schedule I controlled substance to a schedule III controlled substance, allowing further research on the substance to be conducted. "We hear every day about the positive health benefits of marijuana. It is clear that there are medical benefits to marijuana and I think it's time we remove the bureaucratic red tape that prevents us from thoroughly studying this substance," continued Steube.

Veterans who use marijuana are entitled to VA

Greg Steube introduced a bill which seeks to codify an existing VA policy that prohibits penalizing veterans by stripping their benefits if they use cannabis in compliance with state law. "As a veteran I'm committed to ensuring that veterans receive the care they deserve, and I know that sometimes that care can include medical marijuana. Using products that are legal in the state in which you live--should not preclude you from your Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits"

Require random, mandatory drug testing of state employees

HB 1205: Requires drug testing to be conducted within each state agency's appropriation; authorizes agencies within state government to require employees to submit to periodic random drug testing.

Analysis by ACLU Florida: The legislature took it upon itself to expand the Drug-Free Workplace Program to mandate random, suspicionless drug testing for state employees on a rotating basis. Each state agency can choose whether to participate in the program as it will have to find the funds to do so, i.e. pay for the drug tests, in its current allotted budget. If an employee fails the drug test, he/she must attend a rehab program or face disciplinary action or discharge.

Legislative Outcome: Passed House 79-37-3 on Mar/2/12; State Rep. Greg Steube voted YES; Passed Senate 26-14-0 on Mar/9/12; Signed by Governor Rick Scott on Mar/19/12
