    "After the event, she told the Branson Tri-Lake News that “I don’t think there are enough seniors that realize that there are some therapeutic benefits to medical marijuana, marijuana that you consume opposed to smoke when you’re young and in a pair of jeans and a T-shirt.” April 2015 "I think we need to look at hemp as an agricultural product obviously and there needs to be some thoughtful way of making sure, because most hemp grown is industrial hemp, it's not the kind you hope your 14-year-old isn't smoking," McCaskill said as marijuana reformers no doubt had to fight a desire to scream out about how it's impossible to get high off hemp." She continued: "So it is probably, I think, a good idea to look at, we're always at ways. Frankly, our agriculture is our lifesaver in Missouri because we have a positive trade balance because of how much we export. If hemp can be another one, I'm certainly open to it." March 2014 "I'm in close contact with my colleagues in Colorado and they're having some unexpected problems, some activity that they're not happy about. So I'm continuing to talk to them." McCaskill said, offering no specifics about these problems. March 2014 "You know, there's no question that marijuana impacts your behavior. It's a mind-altering drug, just like nicotine and just like alcohol. I can definitely understand there are some arguments to be made that nicotine and alcohol are as bad or worse. I get those arguments. But I'm not sure that putting another one easily accessible -- besides nicotine or alcohol -- is the best way for us to go." March 2014 "I guarantee you that there are kids who are getting handed beers everyday. So it's not like those same ones handing them beers aren't gonna hand them a joint. So that, that doesn't work. I'm open to watching and seeing what happens with this but right now, I'm not gonna give you the answer you wanna hear but hopefully you know that's what I do. I'm not gonna tell you I'm for it. But I'm gonna watch carefully and see what happens in Colorado." March 2014
