Ganjapreneur reports essentially that man needs votes so man speak with forked tongue
Presidential canndidate Jeb Bush announced Friday on WBZ News Radio that he now endorses the decriminalization of marijuana — though he still opposes nationwide legalization.
But Bush also said that despite his personal misgivings, he supports the right of states to legalize marijuana, saying states should be free to legislate on the issue without federal interference. “This is clearly gonna be a state issue, not a federal issue,” he said in the interview.
Bush defended his position against legalization, linking marijuana to opiate addiction. “Marijuana is a gateway drug, just as opiates are a gateway drug,” he said. “The new heroin and the new marijuana are highly, highly toxic.”
This position isn’t just talk. Bush voted against legalization for medical purposes in his home state of Florida in 2014. He claims that studies prove marijuana is a gateway drug.
