U.S. Sen. Harry Reid says he’s all for medical marijuana, but he isn’t so sure about recreational use.
Reid said today he is “very, very dubious and concerned” about recreational marijuana and that if he had to vote today on the November ballot measure to legalize it in Nevada, known as Question 2, he’d vote no.
Reid said recreational marijuana needs to be studied “quite a bit longer” and that he wanted to wait and see how the debate progresses.
“People better start making their case to me,” Reid said. “They haven’t done that.”
He said many legislators were “kind of old fashioned” about marijuana, but he supports the use of medical marijuana “100 percent.” He said he’s seen how it has helped friends with pain and suffering.
“I am a huge fan of medical marijuana,” Reid said.
