Chelsea Clinton Walks Back Comment that Cannabis can Kill, Says She ‘Misspoke’

Inside The South By Southwest (SXSW) Interactive FestivalRecently we published an article detailing how Chelsea Clinton admitted that cannabis has medical value, while in the same speech indicating that it could kill you if mixed with other substances. Now, after days of ridicule for her comment that has no basis in science or reality, a spokesperson for Chelsea has stated that she simply misspoke, and doesn’t actually believe that cannabis can kill you.

“[W]hile discussing her and her mother’s support for rescheduling marijuana to allow for further study of both its medical benefits and possible interactions with other medications, Chelsea misspoke about marijuana’s interaction with other drugs contributing to specific deaths”, a spokesperson for Chelsea Clinton told ThinkProgress. The spokesperson notes that; “Hillary Clinton has said we should allow states that have reformed their marijuana laws to act as laboratories for our democracy and we should reschedule marijuana from a Schedule I to a Schedule II substance.”

Chelsea’s initial comments were made on Saturday during a campaign stop in Ohio.

  1. I am happy to read this because I have always liked Chelsea but was devastated by her previous comments. Of course if you mix marijuana with Cystal Meth, Opium or other serious substances, the result could be catastrophes.
    Never mix Marijuana with anything.

    Trying to continue her parent’s legacy of racism through cannabis control. Her father was one of the worst president’s for prosecuting cannabis users. Their ties to Monsanto, Big Pharma and BIG PRISONS taint their recommendations.

    Chelsea is a spoiled child who only knows how to regurgitate her mother’s (ie, her “best friend”) bullshit. And in true Clinton form, she tries to lie and bully and then backtracks when backed up against the wall.
