Gov Hopefuls Oppose Legal Pot?
The San Francisco Chronicle takes a look this morning at the known 2010 California gubernatorial candidate's positions on legalizing marijuana. According to the Chron, all of them oppose legalization. I can't help but wonder if they're misquoting or taking comments out of context with at least one candidate?
They say Tom Campbell is opposed to legalization because " ...it could open the door to organized crime.". That's the first time I've heard that from him, if true. He has said before that he doesn't think we should necessarily legalize pot just for the taxes it would provide but should consider it as being the right thing to do (my words). That makes sense.
I've written Tom Campbell asking him to clarify his position on the issue. If he responds, I'll post his answer here.
