… in Little Rock on Sunday:
Clark said he doesn’t condone widespread use of marijuana but would consider allowing it for pain relief.æ “We need to look at that and make some allowances one way or another,” the candidate said of so-called medicinal marijuana usage.
Clark also said the only hope of winning the drug war is dealing with demand, and that he is concerned about criminal sentencing policies, saying that American prisons seem to be overflowing with prisoners serving time for relatively minor crimes.
A fairly positive statement from Clark. And from Paul Barton of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, tacking on the phrase “so-called” is inexcusable journalism.
