Plain Talk: State Senator Explains Why She Brought Back Decriminalization of Marijuana


State Senator Kristin Roers (R-Fargo) is a cousin to state Rep. Shannon Roers Jones (R-Fargo). The latter Roers introduced legislation to decriminalize marijuana earlier this session only to see it defeated. That prompted the former Roers to resurrect it by way of floor amendment in the Senate. To give the legislation its “day in court” in that chamber, Senator Roers told me on this episode of Plain Talk.

She explains why she thinks decriminalizing marijuana is a must for North Dakota.

Also, shouldn’t politicians have to answer tough questions? Even from their critics?
