"Teamsters union says it is opposed to a proposed ballot initiative on legalizing recreational marijuana use, and has [donated] to a lobby group devoted to defeating the proposal"

"The Teamsters, who primarily represent truck drivers and warehouse workers, are not 'philosophically opposed' to the legalization of marijuana, California Teamsters lobbyist Barry Broad told BuzzFeed News. But he said the union has serious concerns about how the drug would be transported and distributed under the proposal that Californians are set to vote on this November."
