Gov. M. Jodi Rell is opposed to the decriminalization of marijuana – a highly controversial issue that could come up for a committee vote in the legislature as soon as today.
Some Democratic legislators have been pushing hard this year for a decriminalization of less than one ounce of marijuana, and Rell had not previously voiced a public view on the bill. Two of Rell’s spokesmen stopped short Monday of using the word “veto,” but they both said that Rell opposes the concept.
“The governor opposes illegal drug use and possession,” said spokesman Rich Harris. “Whether it’s a little or a lot, marijuana is an illegal drug.”
