The line snaked out of the door Monday at the Pinnacle Center in Hudsonville, Mich., where supporters of Republican candidate Ron Paul waited, some for more than three hours, to hear him speak.

Among the most prominent of attendees where those advocating for the legalization of marijuana, something Paul has stated should not be left up to the federal government to decide.

Paul’s visit comes just before the Feb. 28 Michigan presidential primaries,
in which he is still behind Mass. governor Mitt Romney, who has the home-state advantage in the primary.

FiveThirtyEight, the New York Times’ election blog, predicts that Paul will receive 12 percent of the vote in Tuesday’s primary, with Romney projected to have a 65 percent chance of winning.
