Hillary Clinton Doesn’t Understand the State of the Research

Marijuana Doesn’t Need to be Rescheduled to do More Research

Both Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton criticize the Citizens United ruling without criticizing the millions and millions of dollars that George Soros, Peter Lewis and others have used to fund marijuana legalization.  It is a double standard.

1) Responsible Ohio had put together investors to get marijuana on the ballot in 2015. Secretary of State is not accepting the signatures and that there will not be enough signatures by the deadline: “ResponsibleOhio raised nearly $1.7 million during the first half of the year from investors with a stake in the marijuana growing sites outlined in its proposed constitutional amendment.
