Californians love living up to their stereotypes. But nobody does it better than Andy Caffrey, a congressional candidate from north of San Francisco, who smokes legal, medicinal pot on the campaign trail and promises that if elected he’ll spark up a joint on the steps of the US Capitol. He’ll get arrested if he has to, he told Politico, but by god he’s going to hit that shit where it counts.
Obviously one of Caffrey’s issues is legalizing pot nationwide. It’s been legal medically in California since 1996, and Caffrey would be representing what the San Francisco Chronicle called “America’s pot breadbasket,” from the Golden Gate Bridge to Oregon, so what sounds like a crazy stunt on a national level will probably gain him huge points back at home.
