Last week Attorney General Leslie Rutledge’s office rejected yet another proposal to legalize recreational marijuana.
The proposal would have made it legal for anyone 18 or older to grow, sell, or use marijuana. The A.G.’s office rejected the measure due to ambiguities in its text.
By our count, this is the tenth attempt to legalize recreational marijuana since May of this year.
So-called “medical marijuana” is just a stepping stone. The endgame for marijuana’s supporters is — and always has been — full legalization.
