    LOL! Were you trying to make it sound like Rich himself was “on marijuana”? That is what I thought from the headline. But, don’t think that is the case from the full story…

    The Majority of Americans believe Marijuana should be legalized according to both the latest Zogby and Angus Reid polls by 52% and 53%. What is radical is the Media referring to a man who does not wish to prosecute individuals against the will of the Majority in a democracy a radical.

    I wish more candidates shared this posisition. We need some honest dialogue on marijuana in this country.
