State Senator Torrey Westrom criticized the behavior of proponents of the legalization of recreational marijuana, who disrupted and shouted down a news conference being held at the State Capitol on Wednesday by opponents of legalizing recreational pot.

Westrom told KMRS that proponents do not help their cause when they act in such a manner, as it turns off a lot of legislators. For his part, Westrom said he would like to see a few more years of data from the medical use of marijuana before pushing ahead with recreational use, but noted that he is still seeking public comment on the issue before making up his mind.
