Massachusett’s rising political star Joe Kennedy III had some words to say about marijuana in a recent podcast interview.
The 37-year old Democratic congressman said this week on a podcast interview with Ezra Klein of Vox.com, “This one is a tough one for me, because my views do not exactly line up with my own state, and it’s something that I’m struggling with.”
Massachusetts has been known for being a part of the pro-marijuana legislation movement.
“We just gotta be thoughtful about this,” he sadi to Klein. “It’s not something where I wanna get in a position where you kind of rush through, because clearly public opinion is on one side of this and moving pretty hard in one direction.”
It was in 2016 that he also said to Boston Magazine, “I don’t think marijuana should be legalized.”
