Former Rep. Tom Tancredo In Ethical Dilemma; Doesn’t Honor Bet: Won’t Smoke Marijuana

Tom Tancredo promised he’d smoke dope if Amendment 64 passed, but now says he won’t honor the bet.

He said Friday he backed out of the bet due to family concerns.

“Well this apparently has become a national story and I have received a great deal of mail about it,” Tancredo explained. “I have also received quite a reaction from my family. I am especially concerned that the publicity may cause my grandkids to have to justify my actions to their peers and afraid that no matter how many times I say I am NOT condoning the use of marijuana, that that message will not get through. My grandchildren are extremely precious to me and I would never want to do anything that puts them in a difficult situation. Therefore I have told the film’s producer that I will have to welsh on my bet.”
