    I’d think posessing a pound of pot goes beyond personal consumption. If they are serious about making this a law, pehaps they need to bump that down to 3 ounces or so.

    It is a good idea we could gain lot of jobs and money. Marijuana is not deadly like beer or pills even tobacco is. There is no reason not to legalize marijuana

    Chris Kelly started with it at a lb. for personal use in order to leave it up for debate on how much he knows that it wont pass

    This could make up for the money the Casinos are not paying the state due to people getting smart and giving up the casinos.
