Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D), who oversaw creation of the world's first regulated REC market in Colorado, is running for president.
He is calling for cannabis reform, but unlike much of the Democratic field, Hickenlooper opposes full federal legalization. "I don't think the federal government should come in and tell every state it should be legalized," he said.
Hickenlooper initially opposed REC legalization when Colorado voted for it in 2012, but warmed to the industry somewhat as it grew. Colorado's REC rollout was the first of any state, and among the most successful from both a business and regulatory perspective.
