Anti-Pot Republican Lawmaker Charged with Pot Possession

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.'
