Carney should veto marijuana bills
Dear Gov. Carney,
Thank you for having the courage to take a stand against the legalization of cannabis for non-medical use.
It is the epitome of irresponsible hypocritical idiocy to legalize an addictive, brain development inhibiting, judgment impairing, toxic dope at a time when drug overdosing is tragically killing Delawareans every day.
Please follow through on your vetoes. Do not give in.
Thomas Munro, Millsboro
Carney’s beliefs about marijuana are flawed
When Gov. John Carney announced on Tuesday, May 23, that he would veto HB 371, he allowed his flawed personal beliefs about marijuana consumption to supersede the will of Delaware residents, the bipartisan efforts of our General Assembly, and racial justice initiatives across this country. By stating, that he believes legalizing recreational marijuana is not in the best interests of Delaware youth, he evokes the specter of “Reefer Madness” and the racial bias that has long informed the propaganda regarding cannabis use.
