I tried to interact with Tea Party folks a couple of times. I collected signatures for WA State legalization of marijuana in 2010 and again in 2011. This was a much simpler proposal than what we have now, (remove all penalties for adults age 18 & up) and never made it to the ballot. I asked a Tea Party member if the group supported legalization of marijuana. The answer was No.

On another occasion I asked a different Tea Party member about their views on shutting down undeclared/unwon wars. The answer was that the group does not take positions on specific issues. I wondered how they could attract new members without taking a position on issues.
