Follow the money trail if you truly want to know why he is against it! Jack Conway (and his family members, especially brother) is just as corrupt as any other official and accepts bribes, payoffs, etc. from corporate and political interest groups just as politicians do in Washington. Technically, marijuana is still "firmly" against federal law as well, but Colorado and Washington state decided to enact legislation legalizing it even though the Federal laws state otherwise. Recently, United States Attorney General Holder stated publicly the federal government would not interfere with those states (Colorado or Washington) or any other state deciding it is now legal. Conway may attempt to hide behind the fact the federal government does not approve, but the reality is he has a vested or financial motive to make his "opinion" heard on the matter you can rest assured.
