U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) recently sat down with Matt Kibbe from the organization Free the People for a video interview (see below) about the STATES Act, of which Gardner is a lead sponsor. The Act, according to Gardner, takes a federalism approach to the marijuana issue, allowing states to be the “laboratories of democracy that the Founders intended states to be.”
“If a state has decided to legalize marijuana or hemp, any of the spectrum of marijuana and hemp issues, then it’s no longer an illegal activity,” said Gardner. “It’s a two page bill that simply says a state can do it, and if a state does it, then that federal prohibition no longer applies.”
Our unofficial motto at Complete Colorado is “Always free, never fake, ” but annoyingly enough, our reporters, columnists and staff all want to be paid in actual US dollars rather than our preferred currency of pats on the back and a muttered kind word. Fact is that there’s an entire staff working every day to bring you the most timely and relevant political news (updated twice daily) from around the state on Complete’s main page aggregator, as well as top-notch original reporting and commentary on Page Two.
