A few years ago, while Howie was still a state senator, he told me he couldn't support legal medical use of cannabis. He said cannabis was too destructive. I asked how it was destructive. He wouldn't answer, but he did say:
"I'll tell you what. If I had a medical condition that could only be treated with marijuana, I'd just go out and get some. If I got caught, I'd deal with it then."The images above were stolen from the Rapid City Journal.
