This AP story has been getting a lot of play around the media: Colo. vote on pot could affect Obama-Romney race
Whether to legalize marijuana will be on the Colorado ballot in November. President Barack Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney have identical stances on pot legalization â€” they oppose it. And neither is comfortable talking about it.
Yet Obama and Romney find themselves unwittingly ensnared in the legalization debate â€” and both may want to take it more seriously if their race in Colorado is close.
Again, it’s good to see this on the national stage this year. Even when both candidates don’t want to talk about it, they can’t avoid it.
And one thing the article didn’t discuss… How will they avoid talking about it, if a Gary Johnson, for example, starts spending some time in Colorado talking about legalization?
