if this exchange is to be believed:
The day before, by contrast, Hillary Clinton had this exchange with medical marijuana activist Len Epstein in Manchester:
Epstein: Twelve states allow medical marijuana, but the Bush administration continues to raid patient.
Clinton: Yes, I know. It’s terrible.
Epstein: Would you stop the federal raids?
Clinton: Yes, I will.
as Reason, uh, reasoned:
An appropriate follow-up question would have asked how Clinton felt when her husband pursued a policy similar to Bush’s, refusing to accept state policy judgments regarding the medical use of cannabis. Still, good for Hillary Clinton, which is not something I get to say very often.
NB: I haven’t researched the validity of this quote. and yes, ending the “War on Drugs” is something I’d vote for. saving people from themselves is not the place of the government.
* yes, the thought of this made me throw up in my mouth a little bit.
