Ron DeSantis Won’t Sign Off on Recreational Pot Because He Doesn’t Like the Smell

A large number of states are now allowing their residents to use marijuana legally. 36 states have some kind of medicinal marijuana law. And in 18 states, the recreational use of marijuana has been approved.

States certainly benefit from legalizing the drug as it is heavily taxed. Residents of Florida, though, shouldn’t expect to see recreational shops anytime soon. Governor Ron DeSantis recently told reporters that he is against legalizing weed because he doesn’t like the smell.

“It smells so putrid,” DeSantis told reporters. “I think a lot of those other areas that have done it you know have ended up regretting it. But I could not believe the pungent odor that you would see in some of these places and I don’t want to see that here. I want people to be able to breathe freely.”

Agriculture Commissioner and DeSantis critic Nikki Fried responded to the comments:

“This is so idiotic. He’s supporting a ban on a plant because he doesn’t like the smell? What the hell is he talking about? Legalizing marijuana and expunging records of those charged with related crimes, is about freedom and justice. Sounds like Dictator Karen wasn’t having much fun at Yale and Harvard so now he’s taking it out on the rest of us.”
