Bill Clinton: 'There's a lot of evidence' for legal medical marijuana

Former President Bill Clinton still won't inhale — but he's not entirely opposed to the idea of medical marijuana, either.

In a pre-taped interview with Meet The Press that aired Sunday, Clinton said there was "a lot of evidence to argue for the medical marijuana thing," though he added that there were also "a lot of unresolved questions."

Saying it should be up to the states to decide whether to permit medical marijuana, Clinton added that "this really is a time when there should be laboratories of democracy, because nobody really knows where this is going." --Jon Terbush
