So, I totally thought I posted about Orrin Hatch’s statement in medical marijuana research, but I can’t seem to find it…
On 9/13 Hatch released this amazing pun riddled statement:
(He was either a total stoner back in the day or was being trolled hard by a staffer.)
Oh, no…he’s a total stoner. To start, Orrin Hatch writing for HuffPost…2017 is a weird, weird time. But, he pulls out alllll the puns here and he knows it.
“As I said last month on the Senate floor, it’s high time we give stone-cold serious consideration to medical marijuana research. For twenty years, states have delved into the weeds of potential uses, but research has often been stymied by a puffed-up regulatory bureaucracy. As doctors strain to find effective alternatives to addictive opioids, they need more than token gestures from Congress; they need potent solutions. That’s why the bill we have rolled out is not a half-baked policy proposal but an earnest effort to address a chronic problem in the system. With growing support from Democrats and Republicans alike, this joint effort represents a unique hash of ideas from members of both parties, and a budding opportunity for real bipartisan reform. We need to blaze a trail for a new era of medical research, and this legislation will light the way.
Now all pot puns aside, it will surprise no one that I am strongly against the use of recreational marijuana.”

I literally I was laughing so hard it hurt.
