Colorado Governor Hickenlooper Comments on Canada's Legalization

April 19, 2017


Colorado legalized recreational marijuana in 2012 when Amendment 64 passed with over 55% of the vote. Also known as the "Colorado Marijuana Legalization Initiative," Amendment 64 was a major game-changer here in the United States, but that was just one state. Federally, the U.S. still has a long way to go. 


Rather than one single province or territory in Canada legalizing recreational marijuana, they're going legal nationwide. Just the other day, Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau released a legislative framework that would legalize recreational marijuana, and the cannabis industry is buzzing. Colorado's Governor John Hickenlooper commented that "...what Canada's doing...looking at a national solution makes a lot more sense than doing it province by province."


Since Colorado has developed thriving and coexisting medical and recreational marijuana industries, Gov. Hickenlooper has some knowledge and experiences worth sharing.


Gov. Hickenlooper talks about cannabis taxation, packaging standards, youth consumption, the black market and more. Gov. Hickenlooper goes into such informative detail that it would be a sin to summarize it, so check out his video interview with Bloomberg Politics embedded below. 




Now watch Secretary Kelly talk about marijuana's role in the war on drugs.
