Romney Loses Cool When Questioned About Marijuana, Gay Marriage

FORT LUPTON, Colo. (CBS4) — A CBS4 reporter got under the skin of presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney after asking him about gay marriage and medical marijuana.

CBS4’s Shaun Boyd spoke with Romney Wednesday during his campaign stop at Fort Lupton to talk about what he called Obama’s failed energy policies.

When Boyd started asking Romney questions about gay marriage and the legalization of marijuana, Romney turned testy.

“Aren’t there issues of significance you would like to talk about?” Romney said. “The economy? The growth of jobs? The need to put people back to work? The challenges of Iran. We’ve got enormous issues we face, but you want to talk about medical marijuana.”

Romney ended up answering the question, saying that marijuana is a gateway drug and he would oppose the legalization of it.

Romney laughed it off at the end, though, telling Boyd that she “finally” got around to asking him about jobs.

“I’m not running on marriage and marijuana,” Romney said after the interview was over. “Those are state issues, right?”
