Paul Ryan Supports State Decision For Legal Medicinal Drugs
In an interview with Colorado station KRDO-TV, Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan says he believes it’s up to the states to decide whether to legalize medical mary jane.
“My personal position on these issues has been let the states decide what they want to do with these things,” he explains. “This is something that is not a high priority of ours.”
Voters in Colorado will decide whether to legalize medical mary jane this November with Amendment 64 on the ballot.
According to KRDO-TV, Ryan made clear that he “doesn’t believe” in the effort, but he nevertheless feels the issue should be reconciled at the state level.
Here is what “Money Makin” Mitt says about the sticky-icky:
Campaigning in New Hampshire during the GOP primary, Mitt Romney was asked on several occasions whether he supported medical mary jane. He became visibly frustrated.
“I have the same position this week I had last week when you asked the question,” he said, before arguing fairly loosely that medical mary jane should be banned because it might lead to broader mary jane legalization, which might in turn lead pot smokers to try hard drugs.
“The entryway into our drug culture for our young people is mary jane,” Romney said. “mary jane is the starter drug. And the idea of medical mary jane is designed to help get mary jane out into the public marketplace and ultimately lead to the legalization of mary jane overall. And in my view, that’s the wrong way to go.”
Those folks on the Republican side of things might not like this too much.
