It was about time someone did this.
According to The Daily Wire, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stating she is “still agitating for strange, new special interests carve-outs for the marijuana industry.”
“I don’t agree with you that cannabis is not related to this,” Pelosi said. “This is a therapy that has proven successful.”
“Speaker Pelosi is still agitating for strange, new special interests carve-outs for the marijuana industry and even claiming they were COVID-related,” McConnell continued. “She said that with respect to this virus, marijuana is, quote, ‘a therapy that is proven successful.’ You can’t make this up. I hope she shared her breakthrough with Dr. Fauci.”
Speaker Pelosi is still holding up this entire package over bizarre unrelated things like carveouts for the marijuana industry. She even claimed to the press that pot is a proven COVID-19 therapy!
I hope she’s shared this breakthrough with Dr. Fauci.
Can we get serious yet? https://t.co/CksSWrMKDN
