“he was more focused on decriminalizing pot so that people wouldn’t do hard prison time for drug offenses” “You said you’re for states’ rights. Do you support, if you were President Paul, do you support allowing Colorado to go forward with what it has, or would you use federal powers against the [retail marijuana] system that we have?” Paul: “Yeah, I wouldn’t interfere from the federal level.” (Link)

Comments

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Friday that he is firmly “against legalizing marijuana,” putting him at odds with his Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes. Although McConnell noted that marijuana is “not in the same category as heroin,” he cautioned during an interview with a Kentucky radio station that legalizing the drug could “completely transform your society in a way that I think certainly most Kentuckians would not agree with.” “I don’t think an answer to this, honestly, is to go in a direction of legalizing any of these currently illegal drugs,” McConnell said, according to a report in Roll Call. “This whole movement in various parts of the country is a big mistake.”
