Once upon a time, most gubernatorial candidates shied away from the mention of marijuana unless they were pledging to crack down on it. But now, Glendale Mayor Mike Dunafon and medical marijuana advocate Anne Armstrong are putting pot front and center in their campaigns for the top office in Colorado and Rhode Island, respectively. As we recently noted on our Backbeat blog, Dunafon co-stars alongside hip-hop star Wyclef Jean in a music video that stresses marijuana rights. Meanwhile, Armstrong, a write-in hopeful for the Compassionate Party, proves her devotion to MMJ by firing up on camera. These aren't your grandparents' campaign commercials. Check them out below.
