Gov. Rick Perry defended Colorado and Washington's legalization of marijuana on Thursday, saying it was an issue of state rights, while touting initiatives in Texas as national models for keeping minor drug offenders out of jail.
Perry spokeswoman Lucy Nashed said the governor's office had hired Austin lawyer David Botsford "to ensure the special prosecutor receives the facts in this matter."
"The facts will show this veto was made in accordance with the veto power afforded to every governor under the Texas Constitution," Nashed said in an email. "As we have from the beginning, we remain ready and willing to assist with this inquiry."
