Elizabeth Warren Weighs In on Ballot Questions
Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren appears to be leaning toward supporting two high-profile ballot questions on the November ballot in Massachusetts.
Asked Monday if she supports a question that would legalize the medical use of marijuana, Warren said she’s in favor of allowing doctors to prescribe something that can help ease a patient’s suffering.
She also said there would have to be proper restrictions on the use of the drug.
Warren also said she leans toward giving dying patients more autonomy is making life-ending decisions. Warren made the comment when asked about a question that would allow terminally ill adults to self-administer life-ending drugs.
Warren spoke on WTKK-FM.
Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown has said he’s opposed to the marijuana question, but is still weighing the life-ending drugs question. (AP)
