John Hickenlooper: Legalizing Marijuana in Colorado Was 'Reckless'

Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper awkwardly shared his opinion of the legalization of marijuana in his state, appearing indecisive about what he thought before calling it “reckless.”

After pausing, Hickenlooper added, “The matter of fact–aw, what the hell, I’ll say it was reckless.”

Hickenlooper indicated that Colorado was wrong to legalize marijuana without having all of the data about the impact of its use among minors or having a system set up properly to sustain it.

He cited a study that showed that young people using marijuana could permanently diminish their long-term memory.
