John McCain on marijuana: 'maybe we should legalize'

Published on Sep 7, 2013

Sen. John McCain indicated he may be changing his stance on marijuana legalization during a town hall event in Arizona on Thursday.

Arizona Daily Star columnist Tim Steller tweeted that McCain said "maybe we should legalize" during the Phoenix event:

McCain isn't the first one in his family to show signs of support for marijuana legalization. His daughter Meghan McCain came out in favor of pot legalization -- and admitted she'd smoked a joint -- in June 2012.

McCain didn't just address the topic of pot legalization during the town hall. He faced a tough crowd during the event while discussing the situation in Syria, with many in the crowd largely opposed to military action.
