DENVER — Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry may not agree with Colorado’s decision to legalize recreational marijuana, but he said Saturday he will defend the state’s right to make a hash of things.
Speaking at the Western Conservative Summit, Mr. Perry made a vigorous defense for the states’ role as “laboratories of democracy,” in the words of the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis, even if it means sticking up for Colorado’s retail pot market.
“Let this country compete again. I am so optimistic about the future of America if we would free up these states from this one-size-fits-all,” Mr. Perry said. “You’ll see innovation. And from time to time, a state’s going to foul it up. They just are.”
