My Faith Votes: ‘This outcome will save our youth population from marijuana’s devastating effects.’
DALLAS — Jason Yates, CEO of My Faith Votes released the following statement in response to voter turnout in South Dakota and the rejection of Measure 27:
“We know from experience in other states that marijuana usage correlates with higher suicide, psychosis, and depression rates. People of faith in South Dakota took that admonition to heart this week by voting no on Measure 27. We are praising God, knowing that this outcome will save our youth population from marijuana’s devastating effects.”
My Faith Votes sent letters to nearly 113,000 pastors in all 50 states, outlining key ballot issues in their states and providing educational resources for speaking to their congregations on these topics.
