Rand Paul Upsets Marijuana Activists by Saying the Drug Is 'Not Healthy'Submitted by PaulFanDC on Thu, 07/11/2013 - 14:48
Ahead of his Thursday visit to Nevada, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., reiterated his personal opposition to marijuana use. Pro-pot activists say Paul is spreading misinformation about the drug.
"I personally think that marijuana use is not healthy," Paul told the Las Vegas Sun in an interview published Wednesday. "People that use it chronically have a loss of IQ and a loss of ambition, but at the same time states have the right to make these decisions."
Marijuana activists tell U.S. News that Paul's claims about ambition, health and IQ are wrong.
