A story by Charlottesville-area station NBC 29 indicates "Cuccinelli said he's not against states experimenting with what places like Colorado and Washington have done, calling it a learning opportunity for other places."Will this signal movement from other prominent Republicans towards legalization? Opposition to the drug war can make for strange bedfellows...
An article in The Cavalier Daily, a U.Va. student newspaper, said Cuccinelli took on the topic in response to a student's question.
"I’m not sure about Virginia’s future [in terms of marijuana legalization]," the newspaper quoted Cuccinelli saying. "But I and a lot of people are watching Colorado and Washington to see how it plays out."
Cuccinelli's marijuana comments surprised U.Va. political science professor Larry Sabato, whose class Cuccinelli address.
Sabato noted "Cuccinelli stressed he wouldn't be recommending changes anytime soon. But he praised states such as Colorado for experimenting with marihuana legalization, saying this was federalism in action. He said twice his views were 'evolving" on the subject."
"The students were as surprised as I was," Sabato added, observing that based on their reactions "his views made him more appealing to them."
