    I am opposed to this. We already have huge economic costs to the state from alcohol. We don’t need to add another legal drug to compound the problem. Additionally, children will be exposed to this substance, which in itself is enough reason to vote this down.

    I think it is time to change the law and stop fueling black markets not to mention the amount of resources law enforcement waist on fighting pot . It is time to legalize and tax . These are tough times for the state and I think the 140 million dollars annually in revenues for the state ate low estimate . I I will vote yes on this measure it is a good idea
