Marijuana legalization - HB 1610

Marijuana legalization - HB 1610

New Futures opposes efforts to legalize or decriminalize the cultivation, possession, or use of marijuana because current research indicates that marijuana is an addictive substance that can be harmful, particularly to youth. We are opposing HB 1610, relative to legalizing the possession and cultivation of marijuana for personal use.
