Governor Little has no plans to allow legal marijuana in Idaho

 

When Gov. Brad Little was asked at his first “Capital for a Day” session on Tuesday if Idahoans, like people in other nearby states, are looking toward marijuana legalization, he said, “If they did, they elected the wrong guy as governor.”

Little said he believes unintended consequences of legalized recreational marijuana include problems hiring reliable construction workers, questions about levels at which driving is impaired, concerns about children getting access to edibles, and more.

The Idaho Press reports, Little said he’s been hearing from both individuals and businesses that they’re moving to Idaho to avoid the legal recreational marijuana that’s become the norm in other states.

Little brought more than a dozen state officials and agency heads with him to Emmett, his hometown, for the “Capital for a Day” session, and pledged to do the same around the state.
