Former president Bill Clinton has come out in favor of allowing individual states to decide whether or not to legalize marijuana, noting that there's increasing evidence that shows that medical marijuana can be beneficial for patients who are ill.
Clinton, who caused a mini-commotion when he claimed he didn't "inhale," told NBC's David Gregory during an interview in Denver last week, that he thinks there's plenty of evidence to argue in favor of medical marijuana. "I think there are a lot of unresolved questions, but I think we should leave it to the states," he said. "This is really a time when there should be laboratories of democracy, because nobody really knows where this is going."
