A GOP senate candidate is running on “Pot for Potholes”. This campaign is focused on marijuana-funded infrastructure change in his home state of Missouri. C.W. Gardner has worked to stand out from many other opponents looking to take the Senate seat in Missouri by launching a recent spot advertisement. In this advertisement, Gardner focuses on “fixin’ things,” such as the infrastructure within his state as well as the cannabis laws in Missouri.
“When I get to Washington, D.C., I plan on introducing my ‘pot for potholes’ legislation… Legalize marijuana at the federal level and take a portion of the tax money collected to bankroll research and development for pothole eradication.” Gardner states within his advertisement. He can be seen within the video walking around in a bright colored vest and hard hat, fixing potholes in the road. “I want to couple that with launching a National Pothole Task Force… Scientists, engineers, manufacturers, entrepreneurs, and federally funded research universities all working toward a common goal: eradicating potholes from this great country.”
“Many thanks to Forbes for recognizing the innovative thinking of the #GardnerForMO movement and my ‘Pot for Potholes’ plan.”
