Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney tried to avoid the question of medical marijuana during a campaign stop this week in Denver, but it didn’t work. In a campaign bus interview Oct. 1, Romney offered a less-than-deft non-sequitur to the Denver Post when asked how he would address Colorado’s burgeoning MMJ business.
"I oppose marijuana being used for recreational purposes and I believe the federal law should prohibit the recreational use of marijuana," he said.
Um, ok. But what about medical marijuana? Well, the Washington Post followed up the question the next day, and a spokesman for Romney’s campaign offered a real answer:
“Governor Romney has a long record of opposing the use of marijuana for any reason,” a campaign spokesperson said. “He opposes legalizing drugs, including marijuana for medicinal purposes. He will fully enforce the nation’s drug laws, and he will oppose any attempts at legalization.”So, don’t vote for Mitt Romney. Aside from being a wealthy prick who ran rough-shod over American jobs to line his own pockets, he is against MMJ. Mr. Smith does not approve.
