    999999/10 very safe

  8. It’s not about health objections or fear of addiction crisis. It’s about taxation and profits. All states, especially during a global financial crisis, should embrace this as an economic path towards recovery. It will lead to reduction in overall population stress & stress related illnesses as well as enhanced profitability and economic viability.

      South Dakota here, first thing I was thinking the tax benefits of Sturgis! I figured at least 22 million for a week.

  9. Crackhead state!

  10. Cocaine and heroine kill people and destroy their health and lives. This is preposterous.

      No its not. What good does throwing sick people in jail do? It only makes it harder for them when they get out of jail and makes relapse more likely.

      Go after the dealers not the users.

    • What destroys Lives is going to jail and having a record that stops you from getting a job or moving on in your life for having a gram or two of cocaine when you were 22 years old

  11. No way now that’s going to far marijuana shouldn’t be legal now cocaine legal, this can’t be true.

  12. tx, legalize recreational marijuana, please 😻
