McKenna on KIRO: Supreme Court passes on pot case

Rob and KIRO 97.3 host Dave Ross discussed a lawsuit by Oklahoma and Nebraska against the State of Colorado for marijuana that is leaving Colorado and entering those two states, as well as the state of pot laws nationally. The U.S. Supreme Court declined to take up the two states’ case.

Ross: “When the presidency changes, does the ‘smell no pot, see no pot, jail no pot user’ philosophy of the federal government stay in place or not?”

McKenna: “That is the big unknown. Will the next president decide to enforce the federal Controlled Substances Act and go after pot growers in Washington, Oregon, and Colorado and other states where it’s legalized?…I’m going to predict the next administration, whoever it happens to be, probably won’t choose to go that route because of the significant amount of federal resources that would require. Frankly, federal law enforcement has bigger fish to fry, so to speak, like, you know, chasing terrorists.”
