GOP Congressman Visits Marijuana Dispensary With Bus Full Of Senior Citizens

A Republican congressman in the midst of an especially challenging reelection race took time on Tuesday to accompany a literal busload of elderly citizens on a visit to a marijuana store.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), who is one of Congress’s leading proponents of cannabis reform, is the lead sponsor of a successful amendment that prevents the Justice Department from interfering with state medical marijuana laws.

But he might not be around on Capitol Hill next year to champion the measure’s extension if Democratic challenger Harley Rouda has his way. Several polls heading into next month’s election have shown the two running neck and neck.

But that didn’t stop the GOP incumbent from a trip to the local marijuana dispensary. Or perhaps the move was all part of the Rohrabacher campaign’s effort to remind voters of his cannabis accomplishments in Congress.

Either way, several journalists went along for the ride and documented the congressman’s weed field trip.

Earlier this week, Rohrabacher said that he’s been “talking to people inside the White House” and has received assurances that “the president intends on keeping his campaign promise” to protect state marijuana laws from federal interference.
