Garrulous and lovable Barney Frank—the longtime congressman from the Boston area who became a liberal icon over his many years in Congress—faces off with a somewhat ambivalent legalization opponent in this televised debate from Boston TV station WCVB.
Question 4 on the Massachusetts November ballot allows citizens to vote on marijuana legalization.
Frank’s fellow debater is State Sen. Jason Lewis, who delivers a few wan talking points before confessing he really isn’t against legalization.
That’s when Frank slice and dices him.
Watch the whole thing here.
You guys are way ahead of us in NZ – our cowardly government won’t even talk about law reform.
