But, understand that the fix is in on Medical Cannabis. The signatures of 200,000 Utahns and the will of the voters be damned. The ill-named ‘compromise’ born in a secret back room by a Gang of 7, made up of a few GOP leaders, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints lobbyist and some window dressing lobbyists (no Democrats or patients were allowed).
After ‘compromising’ among themselves, in an act of supreme audacity, this cabal secretly colluded to destroy the people’s will. They worked out a framework for a law that they wanted and then, with the support of Legislative leaders and the Governor, the Gang announced that whichever way the people voted-- was irrelevant. The Gang’s bill would become the law of the land.
But Prop 2 passed. So, on December 3rd, in an act of tuberous unmatched in the legislative history of the state, the Legislature and the Governor will veto the will of the people and replace the vote with their insider bill. SHAME ON THEM.
I HAVE A SUBSTITUTE BILL WHICH I WILL ANNOUNCE EARLY THIS WEEK. WE ARE NOT GIVING-UP. STAY TUNED!!
