A pro-marijuana Senate candidate has released a new campaign ad in which he lights up a blunt on camera.

Democratic candidate Gary Chambers is running for Senate in Louisiana, on a platform that includes legalizing marijuana.

In his new ad ’37 seconds’, Chambers smokes a blunt while rattling off statistics on marijuana-related arrests in the U.S.

Louisiana has not legalized marijuana but did pass a law last year that decriminalizes possession of up to 14 grams.

Will marijuana legalization be a big issue in the 2022 and 2024 elections?  Will Chambers’ new ad work, or will it backfire?
