Reward unclaimed

In Las Vegas last week, the Marijuana Policy Project upped its reward for presidential candidates to prove their claims about marijuana.

On Dec. 6 at Rudolph Giuliani’s campaign headquarters in Manchester, N.H., MPP offered $10,000 to Giuliani, John McCain, or Mitt Romney if they proved their campaign trail claims about grass.

In Las Vegas during the Nevada caucus campaign, MPP doubled its reward, offering $20,000 to any of the three candidates who prove their claims.

Giuliani has claimed that there are other medications that are superior for the maladies that marijuana treats.

McCain and Romney have also claimed that other medications are better, and Romney has repeated the hoary assertion that marijuana is an “entry” drug that leads to harder drugs.

None of the three have yet laid claim to the easy money.
