Views on Marijuana.
Mitt Romney (R) - Con
Mitt Romney, former Governor of Massachusetts, stated the following in an Oct. 4, 2007 Town hall event in Manchester, New Hampshire:
"I believe marijuana should be illegal in our country. It is the pathway to drug usage by our society, which is a great scourge -- which is one of the great causes of crime in our cities. And I believe that we are at a state where, of course, we are very concerned about people who are suffering pain, and there are var More..ious means of providing pain management. And those that have had loved ones that have gone through an end of life with cancer know the nature of real pain. I watched my wife's mom and dad, both in our home, both going through cancer treatment, suffering a great deal of pain. But they didn't have marijuana, and they didn't need marijuana because there were other sources of pain management that worked entirely effectively. I'm told there is even a synthetic marijuana as well that is available. But having legalized marijuana, in my view, is an effort by a very committed few to try and get marijuana out into the public and ultimately legalize marijuana. It's a long way to go. We need less drugs in this society, not more drugs, and I would oppose the legalization of marijuana in the country or legalization of marijuana for medicinal purposes because pain management is available from other sources."
Ron Paul (R) - Pro
Ron Paul, US Representative (R-TX), stated the following in a June 23, 2011 interview on NBC's The Kudlow Report, speaking of the bill HR 2306, introduced on June 23, 2011 by Ron Paul and Barney Frank, to remove marijuana from the list of federally controlled substances:
"[HR 2306 would remove marijuana] from the jurisdiction of the federal government and allow the states regulate it like they would alcohol, and you know this seems to be strange for a lot of people, but you know I'm only going back to 1937 where that's the way it was handled...
And I am motivated strongly also because the states legalize it for the use of medicinal purposes, and it is helpful for people who have cancer and are getting chemotherapy... It is something that was legal for a long long time and the war against marijuana causes so much hardship and accomplishes nothing...
The modern day war on drugs started with Richard Nixon and it's a catastrophe just as prohibition of alcohol was a catastrophe."
