McInnis: CO's marijuana "problem" all "because of Obama" (with poll)

  • 4 Comments
  • by: bullshit!

McInnis engaging in self-destructive behavior once again in my opinion. Aren’t the big medical marijuana types a bunch of libertarians? Guess Scott doesn’t need them, or young people, or anyone who thinks the War on Drugs isn’t all that!

Guv hopeful McInnis wants to put brakes on medical marijuana – CS Gazette

Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis, if elected, would ask President Barack Obama to re-examine lenient federal policies on Colorado’s burgeoning medical marijuana industry.

The Obama administration in 2009 ordered federal officials to respect state marijuana statutes when they conflict with federal laws outlawing the drug. The change led to explosive growth in Colorado marijuana businesses, which McInnis said Thursday is cause for concern.

“If I was governor I would call the president and say, ‘What are you doing?'” McInnis said after a Colorado Springs event Thursday.

[…]

Colorado voters approved marijuana as medical treatment a decade ago by passing Amendment 20. The state General Assembly moved this year to regulate the widespread distribution of the drug with rules modeled on those imposed for liquor stores.

That has troubled many Republicans, including local state lawmakers, who contend that the amendment doesn’t provide for legal marijuana stores.

[…]

“The reason it all started is because of Obama,” McInnis said of the rising number of marijuana businesses.

I made my first ever poll: please vote below.

Is McInnis making a mistake by calling for the feds to change their policy on Colorado medical marijuana?

  1. If you look, across the state people are taking votes on whether or not they want medical marijuana dispensaries within the city limits and continually they are voting no.  Really the only place that cares for dispensaries is Denver, and guess what, McInnis isn’t going to win Denver and isn’t planning on winning it either.

    1. with his stance on the legalization on medical marijuana. My problem with McInnis is with the stale Republican “everything Obama said or did is wrong” stance. Colorado’s “marijuana problem” is the fault of the voters of Colorado and no one else. For McInnis to try to win votes by once again demonizing the President is ridiculous.
