Ryan: Medical Marijuana Legalization Should Be up to the States

What do you think? Should the legality of medical marijuana usage be determined at the state or federal level?

Ryan: Medical Marijuana Legalization Should Be up to the States

Paul Ryan believes legalizing medical marijuana should be up to each state. 

"My personal position on these issues has been let the states decide what they want to do with these things,"  he explained in a Colorado television interview. "This is something that is not a high priority of ours."

(Pun intended?)

Although he personally doesn't believe marijuana should be legalized, he believes it should be decided on the state level rather than the federal. Romney, on the other hand, said he would fight legalization "tooth and nail."

What do you think? Should the states be allowed to decide whether or not to legalize medical marijuana? Do you think medical marijuana or marijuana in general should be legalized? Let us know in the comments.
