Cramer said he supported medical marijuana when it was on the ballot and passed two years ago but will vote against its recreational use.
“Personally, I hate the idea of more legal drugs,” he said. 10/31/18 https://apnews.com/78164b73537e4e2b8c64fda3af894446
When asked about legalization marijuana, Cramer said:
To be clear, Cramer is not in favor of legalizing marijuana. "I'm such a prude, if I could I'd role it back so we couldn't have booze," he told me. But that doesn't mean he's against changing federal law so that the various states can figure out how they want to handle marijuana on their own.
Calling current federal law "clumsy," he said it may be time to "leave it up to the states."
"Philosophically I don't have a problem with states making that determination," he said, though he added that he'd be "disappointed" if North Dakota voters legalized marijuana.
