Beware pot smokers: Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden will wreck your high if he wins the White House in 2020.
That’s according to gravel-voiced Dana Rohrabacher, who last month used a phone from wherever slimy, ex-congressmen go in forced retirement to contact www.cannabisnow.com.
Rohrabacher rarely missed opportunities to prove he’s a horrible prognosticator during his three decades in Congress and is now pretending that pro-marijuana legalization efforts are best left in the hands of President Donald Trump.
“I think [he’s] made it real clear he’s on our side,” the Costa Mesa Republican beaten by Laguna Beach Democrat Harley Rouda last November told reporter Jimi Devine.
Days after Rohrabacher’s boneheaded assertion, the Trump administration opposed three pieces of legislation designed to bolster medical cannabis programs, including one proposal for additional research into how the plant can aid veterans suffering from chronic pain.
Meanwhile, he also predicted that Biden will offer fake head nods to the pro-legalization movement only to secure votes but will go back to championship the failed “War of Drugs” if victorious in the general election.
Only “fools” would think otherwise, Rohrabacher added.
In 2016, he admitted he smoked pot in violation of federal law, an admission that might help explain why the usually scowling politician once appeared on CNN before lunch looking giddy with watery eyes.
