Here are some more words of wisdom from candidates who are seeking Presidency in 2016. Don’t get excited.
Marijuana legalization is a “terrible idea,” according to Republican Presidential candidate and current Ohio Gov. John Kasich, whose home state will see a pot proposal on the ballot this fall. “It sends mixed messages to young people about drugs,” Kasich told MLive.com on Tuesday, as he wrapped up a two-day swing through Michigan. “I don’t think we should do that. We need to tell young people to stay off drugs.”
Kasich acknowledged the distinction between marijuana and harder drugs, such as heroin, but suggested that legalization could cloud the issue for young people. “So some drugs are okay, but others aren’t? We’ve got kids. Why don’t we just say, ‘don’t do drugs, period,'” Kasich said.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum have taken a hard-line approach, however, saying they would crack down on state-level marijuana legalization laws.
“If you’re getting high in Colorado today, enjoy it,” Christie said earlier this summer in New Hampshire. “As of January 2017, I will enforce the federal laws. That’s lawlessness.”
On the Democratic side, front-runner Hillary Clinton has said little about marijuana legalization this year, although she previously described states as “the laboratories of democracy” and said she was watching places like Colorado.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders supported a decriminalization measure in his own state and has criticized the “war on drugs,” but has not yet taken a formal position on legalization.
