Call it a sign of the (high) times. Former Congressman and illegal immigration firebrand Tom Tancredo is set to light a different kind of fire with a filmmaker shooting a documentary on the passage of Amendment 64.
In a recently released trailer intended to raise funds for the project, Tancredo agreed to smoke a joint with the filmmaker the next time he comes out to Colorado.
Reports The Huffington Post:
Near the end of the 10-minute trailer for the documentary (at 9:21), Hartle asks Tancredo, “True or false, when Amendment 64 passes and marijuana is legal, the next time I’m out in Colorado, we’re going to smoke a joint together.”
To which a wide-eyed Tancredo responds simply: “Deal.”
The interview is followed by a text card reading:
“Please help us get Congressman Tancredo rocky mountain high!”
One of the more intriguing, and some might say influential, elements of the pro Amendment 64 campaign was Tancredo’s full-throated support for the initiative. With the ballot initiative passing in such conservative bastions as Weld and El Paso Counties, Tancredo surely deserves significant credit for his role in the campaign.
It looks like he’ll now get to enjoy the spoils of victory.
