    Remember elections are coming up and a chance to cull the people in the legislature that reduced the Mary Jane penalty and will try to make it recreational. The state AG is trying to get the drug industry donation all support from the banks.

      I will be voting for anyone who will make weed legal and I will never smoke it. Weed is good for cancer patients and way less harmful then alcohol. It is a waste of my tax money to prosecute recreational users and downright heartless to deny cancer patients this miracle drug to ease their suffering. That being said, Mr. Kidwell will still not be able to sell it legally unless he has a state issued license so he would still go to jail.

      its already on its way to being 100% legal and nothing you can do. Good thing most americans arent as ignorant as you.
