Are conservatives guided by their religious beliefs when proposing policy? ?

For example, marijuana. Why is legalization harder in conservative states than liberal ones? In my opinion, if God didn't want us to have it, he wouldn't have created it.

    Nope...The Constitution and Federal Law mostly.

    Until Pot is removed from the Schedule One drug list, it is what it is....Illegal.

    Obama had 8yrs to get it removed and did nothing except turn a blind eye to States breaking Federal Law which led us down the slippery slope of States picking and choosing what Federal Laws they want to follow and the creation of "Sanctuary" sh@tholes.

    - and yes I am pro-removal of it from the Schedule One list so that the medicinal benefits can be further studied.

    Most Conservatives under 50 have no issues with weed. H e ll, most of us have smoked it or do smoke it. Problem is the old guard is still in power.
