Nall for Governor

By  | 

Loretta Nall, a 31-year-old mother of two, is running for governor of Alabama when she's not busy with her other duties.

Those duties include writing for Cannabis Culture magazine and serving as president of the U.S. Marijuana Party.

She's seeking the Libertarian Party's nomination for governor because, she says, the party already has a structure in Alabama and because they agree on a major issue: They want marijuana legalized.

Nall says she doesn't want to be seen as the marijuana candidate for governor. She says she wants to be seen as a common country girl doing something anybody could do if they chose to.

Nall's days as a common country girl ended in 2002 when officers raided the trailer she shares with her husband and two children just outside Alexander City. She is a native of Ashland.

Officers found rolling papers, a scale, and a small amount of marijuana, .87 grams, but it was enough to net Nall misdemeanor convictions for possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia. She got a 30-day suspended sentence, but she is appealing her case.
