New Hampshire Democratic Governor John Lynch just vetoed new legislation that would have made NH the 14th state to legalize marijuana. Apparently, Lynch has been bagging on the legislation for quite a while and even forced a rewrite, saying the bill had too many defects.
“I understand and empathize with the advocates for allowing medical marijuana use in New Hampshire,” said the Governor. “However, the fact remains that marijuana use for any purpose remains illegal under federal law.”
Let’s not forget that back in February U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, went public and said that DEA raids would no longer continue, and that an end to such raids, according to Holder, was “now U.S. policy.” Seems like Governor John Lynch is confused or maybe he’s just making excuses.
