Is pot in the hot seat?
Local businesses were caught off guard after Press Secretary Sean Spicer hinted that there would be “greater enforcement” of recreational marijuana.
“There’s a big difference between (medical marijuana) and recreational marijuana,” said Spicer in a news conference Thursday. “And I think when you see something like the opioid addiction crisis blossoming in so many states around this country, the last thing we should be doing is encouraging people.”
Dr. James Lathrop, owner of Cannabis City in Seattle, said the only distinction between medical and recreational marijuana is access, and connecting marijuana to opioid addiction is misleading.
