Davis County Republican Women say NO on Prop 2

Local News

SALT LAKE CITY (News4Utah) –  The political action group Davis County Republican Women met in the Capitol Wednesday raise their voices against Proposition 2 on the November Ballot.

The women argue that though the proposition deals only with medical marijuana, the lack of regulation in the bill will lead to wide-spread recreational use of the drug. 

Dr. Jennifer Brown led the charge Wednesday. She said that the bill is problematic because she feels it would cause harm to young people.

“There are no age limits in Prop 2. There are no dosage recommendations based on age or weight. Marijuana for a minor can be acquired with a one-time visit and there are no follow-up visits or monitoring required as per the proposition,” said Brown. 

Groups on both sides of the issue are looking forward to a special session of the legislature Governor Herbert has called in November. The governor has promised to reach a compromise in that session regardless of the results of Prop 2.
