Jim Neely on Drugs

 

 


Opposes raising age for vaping from 18 to 21

One candidate criticized his opponent's proposal to raise the age for vaping from 18 to 21. Neely decried Nicole Galloway's recently-announced vaping plan as "a slap in the face to young Veterans across Missouri." "I tend to think that anyone old enough to serve in the military should be allowed to make their own health decisions," said Dr. Neely. "Part of the reason that we all served is to protect the freedoms we have in the United States."

They include trying to reduce the tax on feminine hygiene products and chipping away at the millions paid to managed care companies that supplement Medicaid. He has also introduced legislation that would legalize medical marijuana.
