It should not be legal.
Having been to all the legal states and having lived in one for a little bit. None of this is true. My family's relationships and marriages in MA are just fine lol. Are you just straight up making stuff up?

It 100% should be legalized. It is ridiculous that it is not. Anti-MJ people should be much more concerned about doctors handing out prescriptions for opiates like Pez. Or tobacco companies disproportionately developing and marketing their products to teens and minorities. Or alcohol companies promoting their product as healthy by using terms like "organic", "low-carb", etc.
Connecticut too.

The ONLY thing getting in the way of this becoming a reality is Paul Gazelka and the Republican majority senate doing everything they can to block it. I urge you to call your representatives and demand that they make this happen.
They just announced on the #5 that Gazelka is stepping down from his leadership position, possibly to run for governor???

Maybe this will help push the needle towards legalization. One can only hope.

Also for anyone who wants legal weed in Minnesota….don’t vote for Paul Gazelka. That is all.

I lean conservative as most in here know, but a staunch cardboard conservative like Gazelka has no chance of beating Walz in Minnesota. GOP needs to run someone more charismatic and moderate to have any hope at all.

Or better yet, someone who is pro-legalization.

Legalization is definitely not my top priority, but it would definitely push me toward a particular camp if the rest were of a similar platform.

By the way, it's no coincidence that Walz has refrained from jumping back into the mandate fray a la Oregon/Illinois of late. He knows the election is nearing and that the right candidate will give him a serious run because of his Covid edicts, so I'm sure he's hoping the GOP run a total stiff like Gazelka.

Apparently, no, recreational marijuana should not be legalized in Minnesota because... it will put a lot of drug-sniffing dogs out of work.

Quote:
“You know, the police dog discussion of all that and retraining. What’s it going to cost our local law enforcement agencies who’ve done these dogs, who’ve spent thousands and thousands of dollars on these dogs, to get these dogs drug-trained, and now they’re going to have to be retired? That’s a big issue. … I was the mayor of Faribault and they actually did a fundraising campaign to raise money to get a police dog, to have a drug dog. And now that money is going to go away because these dogs can’t be used anymore, given that. So there’s a huge cost there.”

So John Jasinski (R-Faribault) thinks continuing to spend $50,000+ per animal to fully train drug-sniffing dogs is better than having dogs on the dole. What, does he think they collect unemployment?

Damn. I don't have a dog, but we do have three cats. And guess what? Those lazy loafers have never worked a day in their lives!

It would be a shame to put what probably is a hundred or more dogs out-of-work and is one of the more under-reported and tragic results in this 100-year long rush to legalize cannabis in the US.

A better solution for the marijuana-sniffing dog industry, would be to retain the dogs but re-purpose their roles to helping marijuana owners help find their lost stashes when someone forgets where they left their tasty buds.

By the way, Ironwood, Michigan is only about a 4 hour drive through the lovely woods of Northern Wisconsin (from the north-eastern Twin Cities suburbs for anyone so inclined to purchase cannabis OTC.

Legalize pot? the genie is out of the bottle. What a waste of time for cops. They don't like being tied up with these minor legal matters either.
