Rubio Says ‘Willing to Explore’ Medical Marijuana Legalization

Medical marijuana should go through FDA process Marco Rubio says while declining to support full legalization.

  • “I’m not in support of any additional intoxicants being legalized,” Rubio says at Republican presidential forum at St. Anselm College in Manchester, N.H.
  • Calls for modernized legal immigration system that allows immigrants who pass background check, pay fine and learn English to get work permit for “extended period of time”
    • Immigration system should be “based on merit”
  • NOTE: 14 Republican presidential candidates are participating in candidate forum sponsored by New Hampshire Union Leader, Charleston Post and Courier, and Cedar Rapids Gazette, among other media outlets
