Doc Hastings Talks on Marijuana Laws

Congressmen Doc Hastings spoke at the at the Pasco- Kennewick Rotary club meeting.

That's where we caught up with him to ask him if he thinks there will be an issue with the differing state and federal marijuana laws.

When we asked him if people applying for marijuana licenses should be concerned about federal laws Hastings told us it's all about following the guidelines set by the state. "They'll have to deal with whatever the state laws are. The federal laws haven't changed so whatever the state laws are are something they'll have to respond to," said Hastings.

Hastings also says this isn't an urgent issue that is being discussed in Congress right now, and thats because only two states, Colorado and Washington have legalized the recreational use of marijuana.
