Anti-marijuana measures draw proponents, opponents to Statehouse hearing

The Senate State Affairs Committee is meeting in the Capitol Auditorium this morning, where there’s a fairly large turnout from backers of two anti-marijuana measures, including teens from the Meridian Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council. Only about 10 people have signed up to speak against the two measures, proposed by Sen. Chuck Winder, R-Boise. One, SCR 112, would oppose legalizing marijuana in Idaho for any reason, ever. The second, SJM 101, is a non-binding memorial to Congress and the U.S. Department of Justice calling on the feds to enforce federal drug laws against marijuana in all states – including those where the states and their voters have opted to legalize it.
