Pro-Legalization Canadidate Named Dubie Collects Nearly 10% Of Missouri Senate Vote

Chief Wana Dubie's dream of representing Missouri in the U.S. Senate has gone up in smoke.

The 57-year-old Dubie — his real name since 2007 — finished third among four contenders in the Democratic Senate primary Tuesday, garnering nearly 10 per cent of the vote. Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander will face Republican Sen. Roy Blunt in November.

Dubie, of rural Salem, previously failed in a bid for the Missouri House. Sporting a large forehead tattoo that started as a marijuana leaf, he ran his latest race on a platform advocating term limits and "100 per cent legalization of marijuana."

Dubie said Wednesday he's impressed with all the votes — 30,340 — a "crazy-looking hippie like me" received, and now he'll run as a write-in candidate in the U.S. presidential race.

Latest.

Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) isn't the most vocal cannabis advocate on the 2020 presidential campaign trail, but you shouldn't take that as a lack of support for marijuana legalization. Unlike many of the top contenders for the upcoming Democratic primaries, Ryan hasn't filed any of his own cannabis legalization bills.
