To quote the late and great Peter Tosh

Legalize it - don't criticize it!!

I love that song!

And to think it was written 40 or so years ago. I guess ol' Peter was onto something!

That's excessive. It'd be like making parking meter violations $100.00 minimum. Above you all, the fine is a money making penalty, $100.00 is appropriate. Anything more is just greed aimed at anyone but yourself. Totally unnecessary.

With 129 votes cast, 78% of Talk of the Sound readers want to see possession of small amounts or marijuana decriminalized. Just 13% saw the Governor's actions as the "coming of the apocalypse" and 9% said "Feh".
