Romney dodges multiple marijuana questions


The group Students for a Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) has sent dozens of its members to New Hampshire to question the Republican presidential candidates about their views on medical marijuana and other drug laws, but they have so far failed to get much of a response from former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

At a campaign stop in Bedrock on Monday, a student asked Romney if he thought the drug war was working.

“It’s a long question that deserves a full answer, and not just in a photo line like this” he responded. “So come look on my website. You’ll see my answer.”

But his website makes no mention of the war on drugs, except for the transcript of an speech from October in which he said he would begin talks with Mexico “to strengthen our cooperation on our shared problems of drugs and security.”
