Justice Montgomery should recuse himself on the marijuana issue

August 19, 2020

So far, Justice Bill Montgomery is not recusing himself from voting on the ballot measure to legalize marijuana, even though, as County Attorney he was the most vocal opponent of legalization and lead the fight against the last ballot measure. He certainly should recuse himself now that he is on the Supreme Court. To make this issue even more smarmy, some will remember that Montgomery’s group that was opposing the marijuana legalization was largely funded by John Kapoor, the now convicted felon who headed Insys Therapeutics, the largest producer of fentanyl, a drug that, unlike marijuana, is extremely dangerous and addictive. Obviously, Kapoor did not want any competition from marijuana.
