It would seem that Virginia Attorney General and candidate for governor, Ken Cuccinelli thinks states should “experiment” (there’s a pun in there somewhere right?) with legalizing marihuana. “I don’t have a problem with states experimenting with this sort of thing. I think that’s the role of the states,” Cuccinelli said.
These controversial comments might be a win for federalists and Virginia’s pot legalization lobby. And having given these remarks at the University of Virginia, Cuccinelli’s comments may also mark a shrewd political calculation.
