Excellent cogent "rant" argument.
Would love to see this fellow get elected...
Andy Caffrey, a candidate for Congress in California
, has made a rather unusual campaign promise: If he wins, he’ll smoke a joint — right on the steps of Capitol Hill.
The 54-year-old is running on a seven-step platform that prioritizes battling the climate crisis, but the casual manner in which puffs pot
on the campaign trail — including twice just last week — is what has captivated local media covering the Second Congressional District House race. And Caffrey admits that this is precisely what he’s aiming for.

“I’m willing to get arrested to fight for our rights, to defend our rights as Californians to consume medicine,” Caffrey, a registered Democrat, said in an interview. “If I have to do it, I’ll smoke a joint on the Capitol steps and get arrested to draw national attention to what’s going on.”http://www.politico....0512/76574.html
