Rick Saccone voted against Pennsylvania’s medical cannabis law as a state legislator, while Conor Lamb has been on the record as supporting medicinal marijuana.

Medical cannabis is an extremely popular policy that cuts across political demographics and the partisan divide. In fact, not many hot-button topics receive such strong support, regardless of political party. With over 60% support for ending prohibition for all adults, it’s hard to find any new national polling even asking about medical use. A whopping 88% of Pennsylvania voters supported medical cannabis back in 2015. You’ll be hard-pressed to find an issue that comes before Congress where 88% of Keystone voters agree with one another. Rick Saccone proved to be way out of the mainstream on medical cannabis, while Lamb sensibly agrees with the super-majority of Pennsylvanians and Americans that know that doctors and patients should be making decisions on medicinal use, not politicians and law enforcement officers.

Did Rick Saccone call for the execution of all Republicans that use/deal that Schedule 1 Killer Weed?
Why doesn't he love America?

Republican addicts should be the first to DIE! from their addiction to this horrible drug.

Let's hope R's come to their senses with respect to marijuana. If not, hopefully they keep losing elections to people who are for legalization.

Edit: someone on patnet said that marijuana legalization is secondary. I do not think so - drug convictions screw up many peoples' lives, and incarcerations cost a lot, diverting police from catching "real killers".

True-the war on drugs is the single most failed policy of our times. If Trump wants to curt govt-DEA will give billions in savings and also save many lives.
Poor people especially once they get a record -it si for life. They can never go up the ladder. it is time to end this farce and alimony and unreasonable child support-.

Well, if you're the politically powerful prison guards union, the war on drugs has been a fantastic success. More prisoners = more work for prison guards.

This election shouldn't be considered some huge staunching.

The win eked through with less than .021% difference.

I think Sessions is on the right track he wont screw with MJ unless some greedy scum sucking pig, wants to try to corner the market and become America's biggest player and virtual Monopoly. So he's only going to fuck with those Ballers that try to grow their MJ business to a huge Money empire something worth fucking with.
If the States allow mostly small local players that don't have lofty growth plans. Then they'll fly under the radar.

It doesn't matter what the States pass.

Exactly, if R would have had a more reasonable marijuana stance, he would perhaps have won.

I do not see why he needs to have it illegal at Federal level. Let the states decide.

Turns out, Paul Ryan's PAC ran a mailer in favor of Lamb.

No, that's not mistake.





That PAC is a Paul Ryan affiliated PAC.

Now, it could be this was a plan to undermine Lamb's support among Dems. But it's also possible it was to give move him forward on the Gun Issue among Voters who value Gun Rights

Also remember this is Steelers Country so Trump whinging constantly about the NFL couldn’t have helped the Republicans
