Republicans for Reefer? Who woulda thought?

With a history of puritanical Calvinism, Paul Ryan's recent support for medicinal marijuana came as quite the surprise.
First John McCain's daughter, Meghan, and then Paul Ryan, of all people, have come out in favor of legalized marijuana. McCain supports legalization overall, and puts her bong where her mouth is at. Ryan, on the other hand, claims to support legalized medicinal marijuana, although his previous voting record on marijuana issues shows him to be anti-marijuana, medicinal or otherwise. But even lip service is way far better than the Republican Party's record of anti-reefer madness.
