Thursday night’s Republican Presidential debate – for people watching in Ohio – featured campaign ads from the marijuana legalization group ResponsibleOhio, the group behind a controversial plan that could be on this fall’s ballot.
Chris Christie doesn’t like marijuana legalization. He’s not bothered by polls showing a majority of voters favor it. He’s running for president but keeps aligning himself in the minority on the issue of cannabis legalization because he can’t be bothered by things like “winning.” He continues to vocalize his opposition to legalization because, apparently, having any shot at being president is just not his thing.
Today presidential candidate and Senator Rand Paul will utilize his libertarian, laissez-faire political attitude in attempt to woo head players in the cannabis industry.
Paul’s fundraising reception will be at the Cannabis Business Summit meeting in Denver, CO, co-sponsored by the National Cannabis Industry Association. At the event, Paul will discuss and defend his stance on marijuana issues, such as banking regulations, medical marijuana policy, and nationwide legalization.
Yesterday on 4/20, “the best day of the year,” rapper Waka Flocka Flame announced his candidacy for the president of the United States. **Confetti cannons shoot pounds of shake into the air.**
Rolling Stone has released the video of Candidate Flame throwing is name into the 2016 presidential race and addressing some hot button issues, along with the main platform on which he is running: to legalize marijuana.
A new poll has found that the majority of voters in Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania — three key swing states for the presidential election — all support legalizing marijuana.
The Quinnipiac University conducted the poll and found that slim majorities in the three states are for total legalization, while medical marijuana is supported by drastic margins.
In Florida, 55% of voters support legalization versus 42% against, and 84% of voters support medical marijuana versus 14% against.
