The 'Other' Paul - States should decide med marijuana issueSubmitted by stm on Sat, 09/08/2012 - 22:55
I'm so ticked off I don't even know what to say about it.
Certainly the GOP is just saying this for the votes they think they'll get by slipping this in.
Are the sheeple suddenly going to agree when they were so vociferously against it when Ron Paul said it?
Or will Ryan have to backpeddle by saying he misspoke or was taken out of context?
Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan said on Friday that states should decide whether to legalize medical marijuana — a position far contrary to that of Mitt Romney, the number one man on the GOP ticket.
“My personal position on this issue have been let the states decide what to do with these things,” Ryan said in an interview with KRDO-TV in Colorado Springs. “This is something that is not a high priority of ours as to whether or not we go down the road on this issue.
“What I've always believed is the states should decide,” he added. “I personally don't agree with it, but this is something Coloradans have to decide for themselves.”
