    "If you'd asked me this question a dozen years ago, it would have been easy to answer -- I would have said no, because (marijuana) leads to other stuff," Reid said in the interview posted online Thursday. "But I can't say that anymore." "I think we need to take a real close look at this," Reid continued. "I think that there's some medical reasons for marijuana." "I guarantee you one thing. We waste a lot of time and law enforcement going after these guys that are smoking marijuana."January 2014
