Comments

"We haven't seen the big spike that I was worried about seeing of teenagers at greater frequency smoking. But now, I'm not sure I'd reverse the vote." (5/24/16) https://www.thecannabist.co/2016/05/24/john-hickenlooper-marijuana-katie-couric/54774/

He adds: "I think we've made real progress. And there might be a way to have a better system come out of this. … I am not as negative as I was. I am cautiously optimistic, like we might actually do this. This is going to be one of the biggest experiments of the 21st century."

During a 2016 appearance on 60 Minutes, Governor Hickenlooper has reconsidered his initial stance with regard to legalizing marijuana. He had initially said that if he could "wave a magic wand" to reverse voters decision to regulate marijuana in 2012, he would, stating, "Colorado is known for many great things. Marijuana should not be one of them." (5/16/16) http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-hickenlooper-marijuana-20160516-20160516-snap-story.html

He later pivoted his position: "If I had that magic wand now, I don't know if I would wave it," he said. "It's beginning to look like it might work." (5/16/16) http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-hickenlooper-marijuana-20160516-20160516-snap-story.html
