Legal Marijuana: Searching for the federal response to CO and WA

On Jan. 8, 2012, The Brookings Institution held a 90 minute forum, covered live on C-SPAN, on how the federal government might respond to CO and WA marijuana legalization laws. Moderated by Jonathan Rauch, panelists included Angela Hawken, co-author of Marijuana Legalization: What Everyone Needs to Know (Oxford Univ Press, 2012); Troy Eid, former U.S. Attorney for Colorado (an opponent of Amendment 64); and Prof. Michael Greve, George Mason Univ. Law School.

A useful, thoughtful program.

It was great. The analysis of the political spectrum and the liklihood of support was interesting as was the discussion of states rights, gay rights and legalization. I always get quite nervous when the discussion turns to how much research must be done before decisions are made. The governor also needed to give a big shout out to law enforcement to reassure them that they would not lose their jobs.

Well, what can you say about integrity. With a few exceptions, I thought the event was very positive
