Merry Jane report …… In a recent interview with Gray Television Washington News Bureau, RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel tried to dodge a number of questions relating to the Republican social gathering’s official stance on medicinal pot. In the interview, journalist Alana Austin recounted the story of an RNC delegate who used pot to deal with persistent ache, and requested McDaniel whether or not there’s “a place in the GOP for folks who support medical marijuana,” according to Marijuana Moment.
“I don’t really address policy issues like medical marijuana,” said McDaniel in response. “That’s left up to the states and there’s going to be variances between states, but that’s not something that the RNC puts forward as policy, that’s a legislative issue.”

Congress and a new administration should consider the long-range implications of these trends for public health and safety and prepare to deal with the problematic consequences.”
