Fast Focus: Do you support the cities' pot moratoriums? Pot use harms the community

September 8, 2013 

I agree with a moratorium on the use/growing of this drug. When I think of marijuana it brings to mind the movie Up in Smoke with Cheech & Chong. They seemed to be the poster boys for the use of marijuana, in lala land most of the time or actively looking for their next joint!

Marijuana can lead to other drugs; it takes away your ambition, your energy; it can lead to problems in day-to-day life, job and marriage. I did not vote for it and believe cities should look hard at individuals growing it and using it. I don't want to have to avoid a drunk or a druggie on the road. I have a life to live, too, and don't need drugs to make it better.
