Governor Branstad Pardon This Dying Man

Posted by & filed under , .

The Libertarian Party of Iowa has called on Governor Terry Branstad to pardon Benton Mackenzie, a dying 48 year old cancer patient who was convicted on Wednesday in Scott County for using medical marijuana.  Mackenzie faces a three-year mandatory minimum sentence after his conviction. A Quinnipiac University survey in March found that Iowa voters favored legalizing medical marijuana 81-17 percent.

Governor Branstad’s failed policies and lies have caused this to happen, but the Democrats are silent. ¬†Perhaps this could be the Democrats campaign theme song:

Governor Branstad, Pardon this man! You have the power, but do you have the leadership?
