While Dan Crenshaw isn’t an opponent of marijuana legalization, his policy decisions aren’t helping anyone either. When Joe Rogan hosts a politician on his podcast, you should expect the topic of marijuana legalization will come up at least once. Such was the case when Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), a former NAVY Seal, joined the podcast.
“I really thought we were going to do a whole show with Joe Rogan where you weren’t going to bring up marijuana,” Crenshaw joked.
Crenshaw embodies a unique perspective as a Republican on marijuana. Though Crenshaw admitted that medical marijuana should be federally legal, he believes recreational should be left for the states to decide. He is no staunch prohibitionist, but he isn’t opening any doors for anyone either.
Crenshaw voted against legislation that would’ve protected states that have legalized cannabis from federal oversight. In addition, he hasn’t added his name as co-sponsor to any medical cannabis bills either.
