In 2014, McConnell made a radio appearance at the University of Kentucky.

During his interview, he stated that legalizing marijuana “completely transform your society in a way that I think certainly most Kentuckians would not agree with.”

Opposing Democratic Senate candidate, Alison Lundergan Grimes, criticized McConnell for not recognizing the economic benefits of legalization, as proven by the outcome of Colorado’s legalization.

In a report by Roll Call, McConnell discussed his opinions on marijuana directly. “I don’t think an answer to this, honestly, is to go in a direction of legalizing any of these currently illegal drugs,” McConnell said.
