Reader: Ryan Call's take on Amendment 64 mixes state's rights with following the feds
Sam Levin's interview with Colorado Republican chair Ryan Call about Amendment 64 got our commenters going in a big way.
Here's a post by a reader who saw contradictions in Call's views about the state's ability to set its own rules on cannabis.
Ryan Call touts the "value in having the states"..."be laboratories of experiment," only to say later any problem with pot legalization "has to be resolved at the federal level." I never cease to be amazed by Ryan Call's talent to speak on for minutes at a time while still saying nearly nothing. We need a Republican state chairman in Colorado who can articulate his views precisely and who values the Constitution, especially 10th Amendment rights.
