‘OK, Boomer’: Matt Gaetz responds to Kellyanne Conway’s concerns about marijuana

By

On Saturday's CNN 'Smerconish Show,' Rep. Matt Gaetz responded to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway's concerns about marijuana legalization with "OK, Boomer."

His comments came after being shown a clip of Conway saying, "There are many health professionals and employers increasingly concerned that this is not your grandfather or your father's marijuana. The TCH components are much stronger."

Gaetz said he had worked to "be a positive influence" on President Donald Trump regarding marijuana reform. "To my friend Kellyanne Conway, I would say: OK, Boomer. I mean that's a very Boomer approach to marijuana, if for no other reason that it's actually THC, not TCH," Gaetz said, adding that her stance showed a "real ignorance to the science."

Whether they call it “hate speech” or something else, tech companies are working daily to restrict speech in America. Joining our Free Speech Zone below is a way to fight back!

"This is not an issue that young people are fighting about. This is largely generational more than it is partisan," Gaetz said. He said the "federal prohibition against marijuana has not worked," arguing it "impaired research" and "functions as a wet blanket over the innovation and investment that could allow marijuana to improve people's lives around the country."

Conway told CNN she is a Gen Xer and said "those of us working" on the issue "are looking for a balance."

Eleven states and the District of Columbia have approved the use of recreational marijuana, and another fifteen states have decriminalized marijuana possession, MSN reports. Thirty-three states allow the use of medical marijuana.
