Tom Tancredo Not Smoking Cannabis After All
From the CBS News Affiliate in Denver:
DENVER (CBS4) – One time presidential candidate and Colorado congressman Tom Tancredo says he’s backing out of a promise to smoke marijuana.
The promise involved a documentary where he was caught on camera saying he’d smoke pot if Amendment 64 passed in Colorado.
Tancredo supported the amendment because he thought the marijuana prohibition policy was ineffective. He said he’s backing off the bet because he doesn’t want to set a bad example to his grandchildren.
My respect for this man was going to increase a good lot if he made good on the bet. Now? He’s still a weasel politician who has it out for anyone not white and wealthy. His record as a politician speaks for itself, he’s a hateful little man.
Furthermore, he could have set an example for his grandchildren by teaching them that cannabis consumption is for adults and that adults can responsibly consume the stuff and not turn into amoral scuzzballs.
