Voting Record, 2020

When asked about marijuana legalization in general on the 2020 Citizens Count issue survey, Huot said he was undecided.

Huot has voted both for and against marijuana legalization. For example, Huot voted for HB 481, a bill to legalize and tax marijuana for adults over age twenty-one. A Cannabis Control Commission, similar to the Liquor Commission, would be responsible for licensing and enforcement. The bill also allowed limited home-growing of marijuana for personal use. 

Huot also voted for a version of HB 656 that would legalize possession and homegrowing of marijuana without allowing sales. However, he voted against an earlier version of the bill that legalized and taxed marijuana sales.
