Utah State Senator Jim Dabakis filmed himself trying eating marijuana-infused gummy bears and posting it to Facebook, saying that he believes all legislators should try it.
In the video, Dabakis is seen eating the gummy bear, then recommending it to his fellow legislators before they vote on any marijuana related legislation. He claims that without trying it, they will be woefully uninformed on the subject, and that he is “pretty confident” that he is the only one to have tried the substance.
“I’m not proposing that for everything — like heroin,” Dabakis told KSL. “But this, it seems simple enough. It doesn’t seem like a lot of downsides.”
