Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has turned some heads, stating that he’s “open” to the idea of legalizing cannabis at the state level. Cuccinelli is one of the top candidates in Virginia’s race for Governor.
During a Q&A while visiting a political science class at the University of Virginia, Cuccinelli was asked his thoughts on cannabis being legalizing in Colorado and Washington. He replied, “I don’t have a problem with states experimenting with this sort of thing, I think that’s the role of states”.
The professor who ran political science class, Laray Sabato, stated that it was “suggestive of a willingness to change marijuana policies in Virginia eventually.”
