Idk why the Governor would be threatening a veto. Marijuana is wildly popular politically and this is an easy way to drive up poll numbers and please a majority.63% of Mississippi voters favor both medicinal and recreational. Stop trying to save the word with your own personal view points

Our Governor is being paid by Pfizer to block the process as long as possible. His campaign got $1k from them in 2018 and 2019. Last year he got $100k so did most of the boards in the state that are on the record as opposing it. He needed the extra time to make sure his good ole boys got their capital investments in line as well. He’s a coin-operated politician and doesn’t even care that it’s blatantly obvious at this point. His odds of re-election are faint at best now.

Not to mention the tax revenue legalization would generate for state and federal.

The federal and any state government that still is opposed to legalization is missing out on collecting excise taxes like they do with alcohol. Because we don't need more money to fund education or healthcare or anything.

Opposition to marijuana commonly comes from painkiller-producing pharma giants. Legalization of marijuana tends to see a drop in painkiller use (and overdose).

So my guess is that governors are getting pounded by lobbyists.

Pfizer just bought in for 6.7billion. i bet we see more states magically pass it soon

I bet they help fight it for a while longer. It'll stifle competition while they finalize their go-to-market strategy and develop marketing and distribution.

When life gives you a bad governor, you vote in a new governor.

After the people voted for it in a 2020 initiative which was promptly thrown out by the MS Supreme Court…

Gonna need some dehus.

So, the people select a leader who defies them? Makes total sense.

In this day and age? Governor must be getting some serious kickbacks from whiskey and big Pharma. Legalized medical should be a no brainer. And recreational would add enough taxes to get the State out of the Stone Age

Pretty sure if America just legalized it all our problems would dissolve. But let’s keep beating around the bush that’s more fun children
