Democratic Presidential nomination candidate Bernie Sanders has called for an end to the federal government’s prohibition on marijuana.
Not surprisingly Marijuana legalization activist Tommy Chong is a big Sanders supporter.
Chong ‘Feels the Bern’ on Twitter…
And even volunteered to make a Sanders recruitment video. So Sanders invited the Chongster to speak at a rally in East Los Angeles on Monday.
But, at the last minute…
Sanders backed out and uninvited Chong, just one day before the pot activist’s birthday.
“We appreciate his support but a scheduling issue came up,” the Sanders camp said.
Chong wasn’t impressed.
“It’s lip service to get the votes, but they don’t want to endorse what I stand for and what I’ve stood for all my professional career,” Chong said.
“It was an insult.”
