Victorious Paul supports medical marijuana

Posted By on Wed, May 19, 2010 at 12:48 PM

Rand Paul's victory over Trey Grayson in the GOP Kentucky primary may have been more about tea party dissatisfaction with Washington politics than anything else, but a familiar issue raised its head for the victorious Paul, says the Los Angeles Times.

Grayson and his allies sought to portray Paul, a Bowling Green eye doctor, as something of a kook. They cited, among other things, his support for legalizing medical marijuana ... But the criticism served mainly to rally Paul supporters — many of whom backed his father for president in 2008 — and helped reinforce his image as a political outsider.
