Republican Candidates Challenged On Medical Marijuanaby Doug Mataconis
The New York Times reported over the weekend that a public policy group is challenging Republican candidates who are opposed to the legalization of marijuana for medical use to put up or shut up:
Some of the Republican presidential candidates have dismissed medical marijuana as unnecessary or “too dangerous.” Now they’re being offered $10,000 to come up with the scientific evidence.
The Marijuana Policy Project, a group advocating the use of medical marijuana, will be in New Hampshire next week with a mobile billboard offering to contribute $10,000 to the campaigns of Rudy Giuliani, John McCain or Mitt Romney if any of the candidates can substantiate their statements about medical marijuana.
Something tells me that none of the candidates will be biting on this one.
