Senator Harry Reid Supports Marijuana For Medical Use

“If you’d asked me this question a dozen years ago, it would have been easy to answer — I would have said no, because (marijuana) leads to other stuff,” Reid said in the interview posted online Thursday. “But I can’t say that anymore.”

“I think we need to take a real close look at this,” Reid continued. “I think that there’s some medical reasons for marijuana.”
