“President Buck’s quote from last spring about our mission statement is false. In fact, our mission statement does not make note to any specific policies, including the legalization of cannabis. Our mission statement states only makes note to “pushing for sensible policies to achieve a safer and more just future, while fighting back against counterproductive Drug War policies, particularly those that directly harm students and youth. ” We hope that moving forward the President of Student Senate will become more familiar with the mission statements of student organizations before they comment on them.”
