Rep. Perillo Speaks on Recreational Marijuana Debate

Posted on June 17, 2021



The House debate on the marijuana bill is happening now.
Regardless of where you stand on the issue of legalizing recreational cannabis, the bill we have here today is downright criminal. It is essentially legalized racketeering, government-sanctioned organized crime designed to benefit the few at the expense of the many. It’s picking winners and losers.
Connecticut legislators have been warned by experts in other states, and the governor has already threatened to veto the bill. We’ll see what happens, but know that House Republicans are going to question every aspect of this bill on your behalf.
