Blaine County Republicans Vote to Legalize Marijuana

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — The Blaine County Republican Central Committee has passed a resolution supporting the legalization of marijuana in Idaho.

The committee approved the resolution 6-2 earlier this week.

Committee member Mike Connor told the Times-News (http://bit.ly/VivjVI ) the resolution is not an endorsement for doing drugs, but an acknowledgement that the War on Drugs is costly and producing few results.

It’s a rare stance for any committee affiliated with Idaho’s dominant political party, and Connor admits the resolution is not likely to gain much political momentum.

Idaho Republican Party Executive Director Joshua Whitworth says county central committees pass resolutions frequently, but this is the first one he’s seen take a stance to legalize marijuana.

Last year, former Republican Rep. Tom Trail of Moscow failed to get a bill approved to legalize medical marijuana.
