We recently posted suggestions for how Donald Trump and/or Hillary Clinton should shape their marijuana policies if elected president.

The person offering the advice is the Brookings Institute's John Hudak, and his recommendations work equally well for either candidate despite their vast differences in approach.

Trump, for instance, has talked negatively about Colorado's limited recreational marijuana sales, while Clinton is more willing to let states go their own way, but isn't nearly as progressive about cannabis as her Democratic rival, Senator Bernie Sanders.

Either way, this reader thinks a presidential vote should be based on more than marijuana.

Pretty dumb that some people's priorities are voting for whoever is for or against pot. There's a lot more to it than that, ya hippies.
