A few days ago we looked at a long list of what the announced presidential candidates have said about cannabis. If you went no deeper you might think Carly Fiorina would be a reasonably safe vote. After all, she said,
“I respect Colorado’s right to do what they did. They are within their rights to legalize marijuana and they are conducting an experiment that I hope the rest of the nation is looking closely at,” she told the Des Moines Register. “I believe in states’ rights. I would not, as president of the United States, enforce federal law in Colorado where Colorado voters have said they want to legalize marijuana.”
Always keeping in mind we are dealing with politicians, let’s turn over the big rock. Here’s what she believes,
But while Fiorina, who formerly served as CEO of Hewlett-Packard, wants to let states implement their own marijuana laws, she personally opposes legalization.
“I do not think they should legalize marijuana,” she said. “If you look at a place like Colorado, we’ve sent the message that pot is just no big deal. And it’s just not true.”
The candidate is also skeptical about medical cannabis, and says she didn’t even want to consider using it when she was diagnosed with cancer. “I remember being a cancer patient, and my doctors asking me whether I wanted access to medicinal marijuana, and my answer was ‘no,’” she said. “And my doctor said, ‘I’m really glad, because marijuana is now a chemically complex compound. We don’t understand it. We don’t know what’s in it. We don’t know how it interacts with other things.’”
