Mitt Romney, who is known for flip-flopping and being vague about a number of issues, is actually consistent about his views on the marijuana issue: He’s consistently bad. (In fact, we haven’t been able to find evidence that he has ever said or done anything good on our issue, ever.)

- Rick Perry is good.

Former Gov. Gary Johnson (R-NM) is also incredibly good on our issue, but he recently announced that he’s seeking the presidential nomination from the Libertarian Party, which we support.
