Marcus Stanley, an economic adviser to Sen. Barbara Boxer, had worked on the hill since 2007. He went from making a six figure salary to resigning from his job.
The writers at Wonkette quipped, “He has since resigned his job and will move on to a life of sitting at home reading dumb pot jokes about himself in the comments of this Politico article.”
During the past year and a half, more than a dozen people have been caught bringing marijuana and other drugs, including cocaine, into the building.
Meanwhile, the legalization of marijuana is a hot issue in California. Both Boxer and Sen. Dianne Fienstein are opposed to Proposition 19, a ballot measure that would legalize marijuana and allow the government to impose taxes on pot.
