But it’s not a laughing matter to Tanya Garduno, director of the Colorado Springs Medical Cannabis Council.
Garduno said she and three others with direct ties to the medical marijuana industry attended the event at the Valley Hi Golf Course where Waller spoke Thursday.
“We had absolutely nothing to do with it,” she said.
“Are you kidding?” she added. ”We’re on a (positive) PR campaign. That’s the last thing we need to do. Not only that, but I’m not 16 anymore.”
Garduno also said she took offense to Waller’s insinuations.
“I know exactly the people that were there, which means he’s implying me,” she said. “So, I do take offense to that because I had absolutely nothing to do with it…If anything happens, I mean, if there’s more prairie dogs in Colorado this year, it’s going to be blamed on us.”
