Ken Duncan is the latest citizen to throw his hat into the mayoral ring. This afternoon, we spoke to him by phone about medical marijuana in preparation for our quarterly release of ReLeaf.
Right off the bat, Duncan, 48, laid it on the line.
"Quite honestly, I’m for medical marijuana," he says. "The biggest concern for me is the number of dispensaries popping up all over the place, because I don’t want to cheapen the validity of its medicinal purposes.
"Quite honestly, I’m clean and sober; wasn’t always that way — I don’t mind saying that, it’s just the truth," Duncan says. "But the bottom line is that while I would like to see medical marijuana be nationwide, I don’t want to cheapen it by just making it available to every Tom, Dick and Harry that says they’ve got pain."
See Duncan's website for more on his positions. Look for our full Q&A with all the Springs' mayoral candidates Sept. 30.
