Watch a Congressional Candidate Smoke Lots of Weed in This Epic Campaign Video
AD
Anthony Clark is running to represent Illinois’ Seventh Congressional District, and he’s not shying away from his status as an everyday medical marijuana user.
Published on December 3, 2019

Illinois Congressional candidate Anthony Clark is running on a platform that intends to legalize cannabis at the federal level. But unlike most politicians talking pot, Clark practices what he preaches, and is also a vocal everyday medical marijuana user. And in a new video supporting his campaign, Clark lights up on camera and breaks down exactly why he thinks cannabis legalization is so important.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Clark, 37, is an Air Force veteran who uses medical cannabis to treat his PTSD. In the new roundtable video, Clark joins two other Illinois medical marijuana patients and discusses his lifelong history with weed, which started in high school and reignited legally after his military discharge. 

“Because he knows we ran and now he sees after 2018 the shift in the public sentiment — of course with [cannabis] becoming legal in Illinois in January — now he’s going to sign on,” Clark told the Sun-Times. “But did he fight for it? Was he bold? Was he out front? Was he extremely transparent about it, like we were? No.”

Clark said that he will continue to use cannabis every day during his campaign, and suggested that he would not change his relationship with marijuana if elected to Congress.
