Cannabis culture sure just got itself a tremendous political push after the Democratic Governor of Connecticut Ned Lamont has said that he might be down for smoking marijuana. The revelation of this nearly surreal possibility came after the Governor of Connecticut was asked by a News 12 reporter if he would try out marijuana for himself after he signs the formalization bill.
The question of the Gov participating in trying cannabis came when the reporter said, could the public "expect to see the governor smoking a joint?" Gov Ned Lamont replied that only "time will tell" after signing the bill to legalize the adult use of marijuana in Connecticut. The reply came as a surprise to the reporter that asked the grinning governor again, "Really, you're open to it?" Ned, after first shrugging, did a half nod to indicate yes and said to the reporter, "Not right now, but we'll see." It's pretty exciting to see the progressive stance of the Democratic Governor, as other politicians have been distant or whimsical in their feelings about the cannabis plant and the culture surrounding it.
Connecticut officially became the 19th state in the USA to legalize marijuana for adult use after the Connecticut General Assembly greenlit the cannabis legalization bill earlier in the week. Lamont has been backing the bill ever since he was elected back in 2018 for the state to end its restriction on cannabis use. We're sure he's satisfied to see all of his efforts finally make an influence, and if he wants to light up a joint to celebrate, then so be it.
