As noted in a William Breathes post, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney wasn't pleased by a TV reporter's question about cannabis.

The item whipped up plenty o' vitriol, with one memorable comment coming from a Ron Paul supporter.

Elephant In The Room writes:

Ron Paul has 82 of the 1,144 delegates needed to clinch the GOP nomination. Romney has 904. I'm a Ron Paul fan but it's not going to happen. It's going to be a decision between Romney and Obama, anything else is a throwaway vote. My statement will be that the Republican [nominee] for president sucks so bad that I'm voting a Democrat for president.
