Anti-Pot Republican Lawmaker Charged with Pot Possession (HighTimes)

Anti-Pot Republican Lawmaker Charged with Pot Possession

Tue, Apr 26, 2011 2:48 pm


It’s likely that Robert Watson, the minority leader of the Rhode Island House, is now regretting his incendiary comments during a speech to the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce last February. Watson caused a commotion when he made clear his feelings that Rhode Island lawmakers were wasting their time debating marijuana decriminalization. According to Watson, making pot decrim a priority would be a good idea “if you are a Guatemalan gay man who likes to gamble and smokes marijuana.”

 

Watson’s hypocrisy was revealed this week after he was stopped at a police checkpoint Friday and charged with – what else? – marijuana possession. The police report indicates that Watson smelled like alcohol and pot and “slurred his words.” He also had difficulty passing a sobriety test. Officers found a bag of what they suspect to be marijuana and a wooden pipe in Watson’s pocket.

 

In addition to pot possession, Watson faces charges of driving under the influence and possession of drug paraphernalia. Watson claims he was “safe and sober” behind the wheel and states that his Breathalyzer test “showed that I was well below the legal limit of .08.”

.01 or .08, driving with alcohol in your bloodstream is still UNDER the Influence! A charge is a charge, law the law.
