McCain and Giuliani Say Terrible Things to a Medical Marijuana Patient
You'd think that anyone hoping to become president would show some compassion for this unfortunate woman, but alas…
Notice how McCain turns his back to her the moment she utters the phrase "medical marijuana." Words could not better describe his position. McCain goes on to claim he's seen no documentation of medical marijuana's effectiveness, even though Granite Staters' Stuart Cooper had personally presented him with sound scientific evidence.
Will she have better luck with Rudy Giuliani? Let's see…
Ouch. Giuliani struggles when she explains that she's allergic to the "other medications" he recommends. He also claims not to have lobbied on behalf of OxyContin, which I guess depends on your definition of "lobbying."
Sometimes we don't get the answers we want. That's what happens when you look to the drug war for answers. But at least we're asking the right questions, and asking them often. Perhaps next time we should ask if they've seen the polling on medical marijuana. Maybe that will get their attention.
PS: Also watch McCain insult a New Hampshire student who asks him about medical marijuana, then apologize to him.
