Richard Winger reports at Ballot Access News that the pro-marijuana Grassroots Party is on the ballot in Minnesota and has nominated Jim Carlson for president and George McMahon for vice president.
Carlson is the owner of Duluth’s “The Last Place on Earth”, which sells synthetic drugs, bongs, paraphernalia, and sex toys. This article from the Star Tribune chronicles Carlson and his shop.
McMahon, a sufferer of Nail-Patella Syndrome from Iowa, is one of four participants in the Compassionate Investigational New Drug program, and uses marijuana grown by the government to relieve his symptoms. He is chronicled in this series of YouTube videos.
In addition, the Grassroots Party will list U.S. Senate nominee Tim Davis on the Minnesota ballot in November, and will attempt to have its presidential ticket appear on other state ballots.
