Want to know how to turn heads during a live political debate? Follow in the lead of Frankfort City Commission candidate Tim Childers.
During a live candidate forum between numerous individuals fighting for votes in the Frankfort City Commission race, Childers advocated for the legalization of marijuana by taking a hit from his weed pipe live on camera.
“I also own Kentucky Reefer. Let’s work together as a state and legalize something,” Childers said as he lit the weed pipe and took a hit. “Big money in that! A bunch of states doing it. I have the answers. Tim has the solutions, people.”
The incident takes place at the 1:07:25 mark in the following video:
Childers, a 49-year-old native of Frankfort, originally ran for mayor in his hometown back in 2016, but received the least number of votes during the primary.
He then initially planned to run for Senate, but ultimately decided to start his political career as a commissioner and work his way up from there.
Though I’m not familiar with the City Commission race in Frankfort in the slightest, Childers has certainly done his job in piquing my interest.
