Coastal Northern California is the home to a lot of counter-culture/hippie/pot smoking lefties. Apparently it is now the seat where you have to out toke the next guy. They're all expressing a desire for legalization of marijuana, and even the Republicans don't strongly oppose it. Now one candidate says he'll smoke a joint on Capitol Hill. Obviously he made this announcement to get press, as Andy Caffrey wouldn't get otherwise. He isn't making top two. In two weeks he'll just be another pot smoking hippie.
