When Dan Maes wasn't coming up with new and interesting sources of government income, he — along with Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper and former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo — shed a little light on where they stand in regards to medical marijuana during last week's debate.
Here's the Colorado Independent:
Maes said legalized medical marijuana in Colorado was the first step toward legalization generally and that the state needs to control medical marijuana better than it is doing now. “They’re coming in through the basement door and they’re working their way up,” he said.
Hickenlooper said he supports medical marijuana and talked about someone he knows in city government “who has probably never been drunk a day in her life” but who suffers from debilitating back pain. He said marijuana is the only thing that has ever helped her. He noted that she doesn’t smoke it but takes a tincture.
