    I'm glad that the legislature fixed major problems to the referendum. The AG is stating the obvious that lawsuits are groundless.

    All parts of the Utah State Government are wholly owned subsidiaries of the Mormon Church. It's really that simple.

    On election day 2018 the people of Utah spoke their will on the issue of medical cannabis and how it should be managed in Utah. The Legislature and the Governor then came along and worked to negate the will of the people of Utah concerning medical cannabis and impose their position, which differs from the approved referendum, on the people of Utah.. This raises the question of who/what rules -- the will of the people as expressed by their vote or the vagarities and coercion of the government.

    The appropriate thing to do for this issue is to reinstate the terms and requirements of Referendum 2 -- the law passed and enacted by the people of Utah. The people should decide, not a bunch of politicians a lot of whom are beholden to various entities who have interests enhanced by the legislature's bill. The people decided this issue on election day; reinstate their decision as evidenced by the vote.

    The AG should admit that the constitution protects the referendum and it is now law.
