Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Hillary Doesn’t Like Your Marijuana

Need one more reason NOT to vote Hillary? She’s not sure about your medical marijuana.

As Hillary Clinton declared her candidacy, but it meant the spotlight would officially be turned on Clinton’s stances on a number of pressing issues — including marijuana.

Polls taken in 2014 show a majority of Americans hold a “favorable view” of marijuana. There are now have four states that have fully legalized recreational marijuana, and 23 states have approved the use of medical marijuana. Others have decriminalized the possession of small amounts for personal use. The tide is clearly moving in one direction.

Although, typically, Clinton ducked questions about marijuana since declaring herself more-or-less the next president, she did state her opinions in a CNN town hall meeting in June 2014. When asked about the idea of legalizing marijuana nationally, Clinton said:

“On recreational use, you know, states are the laboratories of democracy. We have at least two states that are experimenting with that right now. I want to wait and see what the evidence is.”

And when asked about medical marijuana, Hillary had this to say,

“I don’t think we’ve done enough research yet. Although I think for people who are in extreme medical conditions and have anecdotal evidence that it works, there should be availability under appropriate circumstances. But I do think we need more research, because we don’t know how it interacts with other drugs. There’s a lot we don’t know.”

In 2007, per CNN, Clinton came out decidedly against decriminalizing marijuana, but did note that research should be conducted into the drug to see if it has any benefits. It would appear that based on her 2014 town hall meeting answers she’s begun to soften her stance on marijuana as public opinion of the drug continues to improve.

But is that softening of her stance just more Clinton pandering for votes, another bit of flip-flopping? Or will she continue the current Federal policy of not “believing” in legal marijuana?
