CANDIDATE: James Neu Jr. for U.S. House of Representatives, 5th District
James Neu Jr., 38, is a wonderfully articulate UAW member and factory worker. He’s a father of two and a volunteer firefighter.
At a Democratic candidates’ forum in in March, Neu said he favored legalizing marijuana.
“Ohio needs money. I don’t see anything wrong about legalizing marijuana. I’m 38 years old. I would be lying if I told you I haven’t tried it. I did inhale. It’s not a gateway drug. It doesn’t lead you down to ruin. For me, it put me to sleep and then when I woke up, I was hungry,” he said.
