UTAH STATE SENATOR Jim Dabakis wanted to try Cannabis before his constituents vote on a measure legalizing medical use of the herb — so he drove to neighboring Nevada to try it out for himself.
Dabakis, a Democrat, said if nobody else in the legislature had ever used weed, he “decided to come to Las Vegas and see what the whole folderol is about.”
“I wanted to have at least one Utah state senator that actually has tried Cannabis before we had this big debate,” Sen. Dabakis said.
Dabakis tried half a piece of Cannabis-infused candy on camera in a Facebook video, after discussing the tax money Nevada has raised. He said the candy was a tangerine-flavored gummy bear. “I wouldn’t recommend it as sheer candy,” he said. “It’s a little bit bitter.”
