Horror Story

Apr 03, 2019

To the Editor:

This whole New Jersey marijuana legalization business is a horror story. And it is a business. Just follow the money, and it’s not tax money. See it trickle down from the lobbyists to those supporters.

Show me a hard drug user who did not start on marijuana. One does not wake up one morning and say, “I think I’ll start shooting up today.” It’s because the marijuana doesn’t do the job anymore.

Sen. Sweeney states, “We’ll pass this bill one way or another.” What does that mean? What kind of a threat is that?

Gov. Murphy intends to make New Jersey a small California. No thanks.

Remember all the tax help for seniors and education that Atlantic City gambling tax revenue was going to generate. Yeah, sure.

Fortunately, town after town is passing laws prohibiting marijuana sales, and most state senators are not in favor. There may be hope for New Jersey yet.
