John Hickenlooper is the Governor of Colorado, where recreational use of marijuana is legal. One week prior to Election Day, Hickenlooper is voicing caution to the five states who have pot initiatives on their ballots this year -- Nevada, California, Arizona, Massachusetts and Maine.
Hickenenlooper tells 60 Minutes: “I urge caution. My recommendation has been to go slowly and probably wait a couple years and let’s make sure we get some good vertical studies to make sure that there isn’t a dramatic increase in teenage usage, that there isn’t a significant increase in abuse like while driving." He adds, "We don’t see it yet…but we don’t have enough data to make that decision.” 60 Minutes airs Sundays at 7pm on CBS.Most INTERESTING FINDS on Amazon]
