An Oklahoma lawmaker is seeking to to slice $92,500 from the federal government's annual payment to Metro because he is angry that the transit agency accepted advertising from a nonprofit group that wants to decriminalize marijuana.
The ad (read more to see it) shows a man carrying his blond girlfriend on a beach, with he caption: "Enjoy better sex! Legalize and Tax Marijuana."
Rep. Ernest J. Istook Jr called the ad "shocking" and said the Metro had "exercised the poorest possible judgment, so I must assure that will learn the proper lessons from this experience and will only accept appropriate ads in the future."
Istook's proposal would cut twice that amount from Metro's budget "as a warning to other transit agencies."
