Drug War Grandstanding: A Bridge to Nowhere

Submitted by smorgan on

Another prohibitionist politician has been ousted by voters:


Republican Gov. Frank Murkowski, stung by accusations of arrogance and stubbornness, lost his bid for a second term Tuesday after polling last in a three-way GOP primary.

Arrogant and Stubborn indeed, Murkowski has repeatedly disregarded Alaskan Supreme Court precedent, and public opinion, in his effort to re-criminalize private marijuana possession in his state.

We’ve reported on Murkowski several times, and we look forward to never mentioning his name again.
