I agree completely. I can see many grand benefits to the de-criminalization of hemp. I have no issue with folks using THC for medical purposes. I have no issue with responsible
recreational use, either.
It's the government endorsement of that use, via taxation and regulation, that makes my skin crawl. I see a long line of clever traps on both sides of this issue..... my gut instinct is to leave that ballot question unanswered. I'm quite honestly on the fence here, and I don't like it much. Those with well-thought-out arguments on both sides are welcome to pursuade me.
