LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - Laredo got a visit from a very "kinky" individual.
Comedian and several-time political candidate Kinky Friedman is running for the Democratic ticket in the race for Texas Agricultural Commissioner. He made a stop in Laredo and was approached about his campaign issues. Friedman was quick to mention his goal of legalizing marijuana.
"I just say it's something Texas needs to do in terms of criminal justice," said Friedman. "We've thrown a lot of people in prison that shouldn't be in there. In terms of effectively reducing and crippling the drug cartels, so we can be the new cartel, the people of Texas."
Friedman also said the revenues raised from legalizing marijuana can help pay for healthcare and education costs.
