During a heated exchange between congress members during the vote to elect Kevin McCarthy speaker of the House for the 118th Congress, #Mace asked cannabis supporter Congressman Joe Neguse from Colorado “What is he on?” Mace’s comment angered many cannabis advocates who felt that her words showed a lack of respect for cannabis and cannabis legalization efforts. However, Mace later clarified her statement saying that she was simply trying to make a point about the importance of respecting each other’s opinion during debates. It’s clear that cannabis has become a divisive issue among lawmakers, but it also highlights the need for more education and dialogue around cannabis legislation in order to help bridge this divide.
With more states legalizing cannabis every year, it is essential for lawmakers to have open conversations about its implications and benefits so they can come to an informed decision when it comes to cannabis policy. Ultimately, Mace’s comments show that cannabis legalization is still a controversial topic among lawmakers, and that there is much work to be done when it comes to cannabis education.
It is crucial for cannabis advocates and opponents alike to come together and have an honest discussion about cannabis legislation in order to ensure the best outcome for everyone involved. By taking the time to engage in thoughtful dialogue about cannabis legalization, we can make sure that our elected representatives are making the most informed decisions possible. That way, we can move towards cannabis policies that benefit everyone — not just one side of the debate. Hopefully, Mace’s comments will serve as an important reminder of this fact.
