Marijuana legalization - HB 1694

Marijuana legalization - HB 1694

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 1694, relative to the legalization and regulation of marijuana.
