Victorious Paul supports medical marijuana



Rand Paul's victory over Trey Grayson in the GOP Kentucky primary may have been more about tea party dissatisfaction with Washington politics than anything else, but a familiar issue raised its head for the victorious Paul, says the Los Angeles Times.

Grayson and his allies sought to portray Paul, a Bowling Green eye doctor, as something of a kook. They cited, among other things, his support for legalizing medical marijuana ... But the criticism served mainly to rally Paul supporters — many of whom backed his father for president in 2008 — and helped reinforce his image as a political outsider.
