Mr. Tvert, who led the campaign to decriminalize recreational pot, said he wants marijuana businesses to be treated fairly by law enforcement, but he also doesn’t expect special treatment.
“Colorado has demonstrated that regulating marijuana works,” he said. “Those businesses that are in clear compliance with state laws are meeting the needs of the community and not causing problems.”
Those businesses that do violate state laws “will likely face consequences. That is how our society treats alcohol, and that is how we expect to see marijuana treated,” Mr. Tvert said.
