Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper says he doesn’t rule out recriminalizing marijuana (dagga), as the crime rate has been rising since recreational use of the drug was made legal in 2014. We saw spikes in overall crime, now some people are looking for that bottle and figuring out how we get the genie back in,” he said.

Hickenlooper wasn’t in favor of legalizing marijuana (dagga) but went along with it when constituents made it clear they were. Colorado has seen crime rise as the national average has fallen. This is the first time Hickenlooper acknowledged he might consider recriminalisation, even if it’s a very long shot. The news comes days after Sen. Chuck Schumer announced his support of nationwide decriminalization of the drug.
