Jeb Bush Is A Hypocrite About Marijuana, Rand Paul Says

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, accused Jeb Bush of "hypocrisy" Friday after a report in the Boston Globe chronicled Bush's marijuana use during high school. Bush, a former Florida governor and potential 2016 presidential candidate, opposes the use of marijuana for medical or recreational purposes. "This is a guy who now admits he smoked marijuana but he wants to put people in jail who do," Paul, who's also mulling a presidential bid, said during an interview with The Hill newspaper. "You would think he'd have a little more understanding, then."
 
In the Globe's report, Bush acknowledged some experimentation with the drug during his time at Phillips Academy in Andover, an elite private boarding school in Massachusetts.
 
"I drank alcohol and I smoked marijuana when I was at Andover," Bush told the paper. "It was pretty common."
 
One former classmate recalled the first time he "really got stoned" in Bush's room at the academy: "He had a portable stereo with removable speakers. He put on Steppenwolf for me." Another described Bush as a "toker."
 
The Globe reported that several classmates said Bush, "with his taste for marijuana and his skill at tennis, straddled the line between jock and freak."

Our governor who would like to run for president comes right out and says he has hated marijuana growers since his college days. Looks like we are the political football in the next election... and not in a good way. The biggest marijuana bully will get the GOP nod and Rand Paul is just pointing them out up there on the pedestal.

Obama messed up foreign policy?  Really?

 

He got us out of a war of aggression we started where we slaughtered around 1 million people for the hell of it.

 

I think the foreign policy mess was created by Bushes and Presidents over decades.  It is blowback from horrid decisions made and you complain because he hasn't completely resolved Bushes/Cheneys blunder which will take at least a couple generations to walk away from finally.  He isn't doing it fast enough for you?  Is that the problem? You think the problem will disappear or can be solved by putting boots on the ground?  Don't be so daft. It has never worked.  Look what boots on the ground did. This is what we created and no matter what we do, it will not make up for the mistake.  Decisions had consequences.

 

 And foreign policy took a nosedive because of Hillary?  Really?  It must be a wonderful thing to delude ones self so easily.  I think foreign policy was imploded under Bush and we are picking up the pieces.  There will be blowback for decades because of what Bush did,... obviously with your support.

What I will say,... is that  certain candidates 'avoid' directly supporting legal marijuana, and some candidates would sign the bill if passed by congress.  I think Jeb vetoes the bill,.. I think rand paul signs it.  I am not sure on Hillary. Bernie would sign it yesterday, and I am sure Obama would sign it.

 

 But they all tend to wander the same line of responses when asked to a degree.

do you think if one of the candidates said they were going to legalize marijuana day one of their presidency, would you vote for them?

 

even if it were jeb bush who said it, or hillary ?

No that is the least of our problems, but if I lliked the person and their beleif's I would!

I am curious if "Liberal" and "Democrat" are synonymous for you. No sarcasm or antagonism intended.

 

I don't think they are the same and am more than a little upset that the term has been, in my opinion, subverted by a party that is a lot of things but "Liberal" as I define it is not one of them.
