INDICE DE GALERIAS
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Greenfield Republican Rep. Clel Baudler says he's proud to be named among the "Worst State Legislators of 2013" by a group working to legalize marijuana use.
Baudler laughed Friday when The Des Moines Register told him (http://dmreg.co/13VczMC ) he had made a list of eight legislators that the Marijuana Policy Project considers among the nation's worst.
In announcing the list, the group referred to comments Baudler made in opposing a medical marijuana bill in the Iowa Legislature. Baudler argued that passing the bill would be "one or two or three of the stupidest bills that's ever been passed" by the Legislature.
The bill failed.
Baudler says he accepts the designation "with pride."
