SALEM, MO (KTVI) – A political activist seeking to legalize the use of marijuana hopes to unseat Sen. Roy Blunt this fall.

Chief Wana Dubie announced his candidacy outside the Dent County Courthouse and promised to “smoke the competition” in the November election, according to the Salem News.

The 56-year-old Salem resident is running as an independent after a failed 2006 bid for Missouri State Representative (150th District).

Dubie, who has a burning pot plant tattooed on his forehead, spent five years in prison beginning in 1997 for growing marijuana on his property and declaring that he had seceded from the United States.
