More on the marijuana legalization debate

I was so glad to read Steve Coy’s rebuttal to Thomas Russo’s seemingly endless, repetitive, largely inaccurate, and obnoxiously self aggrandizing letters.

Mr. Coy is correct. We will see marijuana legalized in New Jersey, and Sessions et al. not withstanding, other states will follow.

The question is no longer if, but when.

In these deeply polarized times, how ironic it is that this one of the few issues both sides agree on. A majority, of Republicans, 51 percent (Gallup, October 2017), now support legal weed, a number that can only increase. And as the Trump train comes closer to derailing, and more of his supporters finally see what they’ve done, an occasional toke or two can provide them a needed and pretty harmless break from reality.
