This shouldn't even be news.

This shouldn't even be news. Marijuana is the least dangerous recreational drug of all. ALCOHOL, by comparison, is the WORST. Alcohol is at the root of domestic violence, liver problems, lost work, etc etc etc. Marijuana was originally demonized in the movie Reefer Madness; too bad most of our legislators still depend on old news when it comes to legalization. In the meantime, WV has one of the worst budgets in history, people are leaving the state, and there are no jobs. Legalize it, and you'll see instant tax revenue, jobs and new businesses, and people will stay. Look at Colorado -- one of the lowest rates of people leaving the state, highest rate of people coming to live there, and f the best economy in the country IF YOU ARE SERIOUS about keeping dangerous drugs off the street, make alcohol illegal. Otherwise, you're just a hypocrite. FREE LAUREN!
