Last week, interviewers from CBS Denver got the opportunity to chat with Mitt Romney about some of the issues that are affecting citizens there. He was asked about gay marriage, college tuition for illegal immigrants, and medical marijuana.
Apparently Romney thought that he would be asked questions that only matter to him and not to citizens because when the questions came up, his response was to ask the reporter if there were “issues of significance” to discuss.
Aren’t there issues of significance that you’d like to talk about? The economy, the growth of jobs, the need to put people back to work, the challenges of Iran? We’ve got enormous issues that we face. But you want – go ahead, you want to talk about medical marijuana?
I think medical marijuana should not be legal in this country. I believe it’s a gateway drug to other drug violations. The use of illegal drugs in this country is leading to terrible consequences in places like Mexico, and actually in our own country. I oppose legalization of marijuana. I oppose legalization of other kinds of drugs…
This should come as no surprise as he has already stated that he will not answer your marijuana questions and he already showed how he feels about people who are already using marijuana to medicate. Below you can view a video where he completely ignores a medical marijuana patient in a wheelchair.
This guy is a class act. Everyone should aspire to grow up and be like him (not!) and we can watch our country continue to make the same mistakes we have been making.
It is one thing to call not choose to answer marijuana related questions but to sit there and say that these issues have no significance is a direct slap in the face of voters. At least Obama had enough sense to lie about it. Not that we trust him either but he is definitely a better option than this guy. At the end of the politicians are politicians and they don’t answer to voters, they answer to the corporations paying their campaign checks.
