Palin on Pot Policy
Jeralyn's summary of Gov. Palin's policy positions should please the most extreme members of the GOP. She is a model of intolerance; a model Republican.
It's interesting that she admits smoking pot. Is the new Republican strategy to admit the commission of crimes that the Republican Party would like to see vigorously enforced against everyone else? If "trying" pot has become so socially acceptable that a Republican candidate for VP can admit her criminal behavior, shouldn't Palin support the federal decriminalization of marijuana? Given her reliance on state law as a mitigating argument, shouldn't Palin oppose the Justice Department's interference with rights granted by California's medical marijuana laws?
Maybe those are her views. If she's not on record, it would make a good debate question. (Biden, unfortunately, might resort to his longstanding War on Crime stance with an equally disappointing answer.)
