The Outlaw Report Endorses Terry McAuliffe for Governor

ACROSS VIRGINIA — The Outlaw Report, the only daily regional cannabis news and information source serving Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia, today endorsed Terry McAuliffe for governor of Virginia, calling him “the best candidate to ensure a rapid rollout of regulated adult-use sales; that the commonwealth’s cannabis market will grow equitably; and that Virginians incarcerated for nonviolent cannabis offenses will be granted clemency without further delay. McAuliffe’s position on cannabis also respects the will of Virginians, who time and time again have expressed strong support for legalization.”

In choosing McAuliffe over Glenn Youngkin, the editorial endorsement stated, “The former governor’s views stand in stark contrast with those of Glenn Youngkin, who has expressed disdain for cannabis and a profound ignorance of legalization’s intended purpose. At a campaign event in April, Youngkin said he had “never met anybody who habitually used marijuana and was successful.” He doubled down in an appearance on CNBC in May, describing cannabis legalization as “another problem that’s going to be dumped at my feet.” The businessman has also falsely claimed that “every single state” that has legalized cannabis has seen disappointing revenue, earning him three Pinocchio’s from The Washington Post.”

The editorial endorsement concluded, “We are confident cannabis laws will continue to be amended in Richmond over the next few years. At this critical juncture, we believe Virginians need and deserve a governor who will speak honestly and authoritatively about legalization while continuing the legacy of the hard-fought cannabis reforms enacted by the General Assembly this year.”
