Right-wing congressman: I used medical marijuana: ‘Now don’t tell anybody I broke the law’
California Congressman Dana Rohrabacher says he’s treating his arthritis with medical marijuana.
“I haven’t been able to go surfing for a year-and-a-half, and I’ve been in severe pain because I spent all my time doing that, which I can barely do now,” he said while demonstrating a paddling motion, according to Cannabis Radio.“I went to one of those hemp fests in San Bernardino,” Rohrabacher added, describing where he found the topical treatment.
“And you know what? I tried it about two weeks ago, and it’s the first time … in a year-and-a-half that I’ve had a decent night’s sleep, because the arthritis pain was gone.”
Rohrabacher confirmed he knowingly broke the law.
“Now, don’t tell anybody I broke the law,” he said. “They’ll bust down my door and, you know, and take whatever’s inside and it for evidence against me.”
