Newt Gingrich Forgets Marijuana’S American History


Recommended Posts

Well, hopefully we don't have to worry about Newt running for prez at this point, but here's a great article about a question that was put to "historian" Gingrich.


“Would Thomas Jefferson or George Washington be arrested for growing marijuana?” the man asked, putting Gingrich in an awkward position: arrest two Founding Fathers or stick to his anti-pot platform.


The candidate replied, “I think Jefferson and George Washington would strongly discourage you from growing marijuana, and their tactics to stop you would be more violent than they would be today.”
