There was a veteran at Tom Perriello’s town hall earlier today who spoke about how his knees were so badly damaged during his time in uniform that he was prescribed opioids. Instead of potentially becoming addicted to the pills, however, he uses marijuana periodically as a safer way to address the pain he has. He therefore asked Tom if he supported medical marijuana.
In what was probably his shortest answer of the entire event, Perriello said he did support medical marijuana and went on to explain some of his reasoning. Here’s the video of his answer.
