Why the GOP Should Support Legalization
This is a message to my fellow Republicans explaining why our core Republican values demand that we support the immediate legalization of marijuana.
"We have a chance to prove, to our fellow Americans, but mostly to ourselves, that we really do have principles, and that we can consistently apply them in a manner that is fitting for citizens of a free nation. The marijuana debate is our chance and our challenge. All Republicans should support the immediate legalization of marijuana, not as a surrender of our core values, but as an affirmation of those values."
