Robert Gray: OpEd: more interested in legalizing hemp than cutting taxes

Enter the Silent Knight, Robert Gray. A soft spoken, humble Every Man who honestly believes Mississippi can be better. He may or may not be in favor of Initiative 48 [the ballot question on legalizing marijuana]. When we asked Gray if he currently or has ever smoked pot, his answer was "No."

For those who cotton to slick politicians, Gray may not be polished. He may be more interested in legalizing hemp than cutting taxes, but nobody is trying to put lipstick on a pig here. Robert Gray is legit, he understands issues and policy. He understands the need to create jobs in Mississippi, which is why he favors Medicaid expansion and likely favors Initiative 48. He is not a politician. He's not a lawyer. He's no Donald Trump.

He's a regular guy. A real regular guy. Robert Gray gives those Mississippians who complain about career politicians a chance to pull the lever for someone who is not a career politician. Do they dare?
