REASONS TO WIN A CAMPAIGN
#1 SUPPORT FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA
Well, Ron Paul you’ve just jumped to the top
of the heap

“You can at least let sick people have marijuana because it’s helpful,” Paul said. “But the compassionate conservatives say, well we can’t do this, we’re going to put people who are sick and dying with cancer and are being helped with marijuana if they have multiple sclerosis -- the federal government is going in there and overriding state laws and putting people like that in prison.”
At last night’s CNN FP Debate, Ron Paul did something that no other Republican or most major democratic politicians will do, announce his support for medical marijuana, insisting that marijuana laws should be set by the states and not by the federal government. “You can at least let sick people have marijuana because it’s helpful,” Ron said, “Why don’t we handle the drugs like we handle alcohol?” He continued. “Alcohol’s a deadly drug. The real deadly drugs are the prescription drugs, they kill more people than the illegal drugs.” He also said “I think the federal war on drugs is a total failure,” and then “The drug war is out of control,” he added. “I fear the drug war, because it undermines our civil liberties, it magnifies our problems on the borders --we spent like over the last 40 years a trillion dollars on this war and, believe me, the kids can still get the drugs. It just hasn’t worked.”
Pretty intelligent Mr. Paul. Actually gives me faith that at least somebody in your party has half a brain and a little common sense.
Just one man’s opinion.
