Resolution: Pot Stops At Stateline

Idaho legislators are pushing back against measures in Western states where voters recently relaxed marijuana laws. The Senate's State Affairs Committee unanimously voted in favor Friday of introducing a resolution opposing marijuana use in any form, clearing the way for a full hearing. The resolution also urges President Barack Obama and the Justice Department to enforce existing federal marijuana laws. Republican Sen. Chuck Winder of Boise (pictured) said the statement is a response to the growing acceptance of marijuana use in neighboring states. Winder said law enforcement along Idaho's western border are dealing with an influx of drug trafficking after Washington voters approved of recreational use and the medical use of marijuana in Oregon and Montana/Associated Press via Eye on Boise.

Question: Do you agree/disagree with this resolution?
