    Obviously your comment about allowing marijuana tasting rooms because alcohol tasting rooms exist is incorrect.

    I can drive my car to a bar, have a beer and not be under the influence of alcohol. I can't drive to a marijuana tasting room, sample a small amount of marijuana and not be under the influence.

    I think it's prudent to not allow commercial marijuana tasting rooms.

    What does the governor’s opinion of the law have to do with whether or not it is a good/justified law?
    "A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all-knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity."
    - Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962), American social activist and First Lady of the United States

    What does that have to do with the merits of the law itself?

    How is disallowing marijuana tasting rooms unjustified? I think it's prudent to disallow their existence. Like I said, people can consume small amounts of alcohol and not be under the influence. You can't say the same thing about marijuana. Allowing these operations would be putting public safety at risk.
