Comments

"There are people who think you can legalize anything you want, as long as it raises revenue," said Turner, a senator from Mercer County. "But the problems you create in raising that money are far greater."

Turner added that even without the attendant problems she believes it causes, legalization of recreational pot "sends the wrong message to our youth that drugs are acceptable."  2/23/18
