VIDEO: Utah Gov. Responds To ‘Que Pasa’ Cannabis Controversy During Sundance Visit, Calls It A Poor Attempt At Levity

PARK CITY, Utah, Jan. 23, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) ─ Utah Gov. Gary Herbert is apologizing for the statement he made concerning the state’s upcoming debate over medical marijuana.

Earlier this week, Herbert said he saw a “path forward” to legalize medical marijuana in Utah, but he warned “I’m not interested in having Dr. Feelgood out there say, ‘Yeah, yeah, que pasa, you know, here’s your doobie for the day and you’ll feel better.’”

The use of the phrase “que pasa” led to accusations the governor was racially insensitive.

Saturday, in a exclusive interview with Bill Gephardt, Gov. Herbert addressed the controversial comment, as well as the medical marijuana issue at large.
