Republicans Snub Marijuana Legalization at Convention
While there was certainly discussion about building walls to keep out illegal immigrants, protecting Second Amendment rights and religious freedoms, and imprisoning presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, reforming marijuana laws wasn’t on the scheduled agenda at last week’s GOP Convention. Despite the RNC deciding not to adopt the issue into its platform for this year’s election cycle, there are still many Republicans advocating for the legalization of the most commonly used illegal drug in the country.
“While there was recently a spirited debate about medical marijuana’s inclusion on the Republican Party platform, this effort was eventually shelved,” said Aaron Kall, director of Debate at the University of Michigan. “Republican delegates expressed some concerns about the medical benefits of marijuana, while simultaneously being worried about potential side effects. Republican delegates often hold more conservative views than the average Republican voter.”
Republicans Reject Medical Marijuana Agree on Building Trumps Wall in 2016 Campaign Platform
The Republican National Committee (RNC) has officially decided that the party will not support medical marijuana or ending the drug war as part of it official 2016 campaign platform. But it plans to get behind some rather ridiculous ideals ranging from Trump’s wall dividing the United States and Mexico to declaring pornography a “public health crisis.”
With less than a week to go before the Republican Party gathers for its national convention, the RNC has voted against endorsing the legalization of marijuana for medicinal purposes and putting an end to the failed war on drugs.
