INDIANAPOLIS (WANE) — Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb talked to WANE 15 about a wide variety of topics Tuesday, including if he should have anticipated the vitriol at some school board meetings.

The Governor also reiterated his opposition to legalizing marijuana in Indiana while it remains illegal at a federal level. He would like both Purdue University and Indiana University to study the medicinal benefits it might offer.
