(Team Hof) – In a September 15th interview with award-winning reporter Mick Akers of the Pahrump Valley Times, here’s what Assemblyman James “The Big Selloutski” Oscarson had to say…
“My campaign strategy was and is to be out in the community and to listen to the concerns and issues that are facing the voters. At the end of the day, it is the voters’ needs and concerns I am representing. That is what I am continuing to do.”
But just like his promise to oppose tax hikes, this statement is simply not true. Here’s just one example…
On November 7, 2000, 65 percent of Nevadans – including an overwhelming majority of Assembly District 36 voters – voted to legalize MEDICAL marijuana for patients suffering from cancer, glaucoma, AIDS, persistent muscle spasms or seizures, severe nausea or pain and other medical reasons.
Unfortunately, the ballot question required that the Nevada Legislature establish a system of authorizing and regulating medical marijuana pharmacies – which the Legislature dragged its feet in doing and didn’t finally approve until 2013 (Senate Bill 374).
Get this: Mr. Oscarson voted AGAINST the bill.
So much for listening to the concerns and issues that are facing the constituents of District 36!
