Comments

"STATES SUCH AS COLORADO AND NOW SEVERAL OTHERS THAT HAVE ALREADY VOTED TO LEGALIZE MARIJUANA, AS A BELIEVER IN FEDERALISM, I DON'T THINK THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD DO ANYTHING TO IMPEDE THAT." "I AM CONCERNED THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WOULD COME IN AND DECIDE THAT IT KNOWS BETTER THAN WHAT THE PEOPLE OF COLORADO OR THE PEOPLE OF OTHER STATES HAVE LEGALIZED AT THE BALLOT BOX. THERE IS A PROHIBITION AS IT RELATES TO BANKING FOR THOSE IN THE MARIJUANA INDUSTRY. I AM NOT A MARIJUANA GUY, BUT IF PEOPLE GO OUT AND VOTE FOR IT AND MAKE IT LEGAL, AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BE DOING ANYTHING -- THEN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BE DOING ANYTHING."
