Marijuana Policy Project’s Worst State Legislators Of 2013

2

marijuana policy project mpp nascar adMPP  released a video last week listing the country’s “Worst State Legislators of 2013″ on marijuana policy issues. The seven state representatives and one state senator were selected based on their legislative efforts to maintain or expand marijuana prohibition policies, as well as statements they made, during the 2013 legislative sessions. Watch the video countdown below. 

The Huffington Post reports:

The video counts down the MPP’s top eight marijuana policy offenders, alongside some direct quotes that are questionable, to say the least.

Take, for instance, Rep. Darryl Rouson (D-St. Petersburg), who called bongs and pipes “utensils of death;” Rep. Luke Malek (R-Coeur d’Alene) who called medical marijuana a “farcical predatory scheme;” and Rep. David Howard (R-Park City) — whose home state of Montana has been battling a crippling meth epidemic — who called marijuana a “poison” and “the most dangerous drug there is.”

The list also garnered some local media attention in Colorado, where the #1 worst legislator of 2013, Sen. John Morse (D), is facing a highly talked-about recall election, and in Iowa, where the #7 worst legislator, Rep. Clel Baudler (R), bragged about being listed.

  1. You know…for all their protestations and hypocricies…I guarantee that at least 50-75% of all the people who have a wrong, preconceived opinion of marijuana have probably either tried smoking it or has a family member who did. I think that they didn’t like the mellow, ‘loose’ feeling it gave them. They think that for them to be respected and successful, they need a steel rod shoved up their asses. ‘Steel in your spine’ is a figure of speech, not literal. Thank you! SRS
