The citizens long ago decided that they do not want these dangerous illegal drugs in their family friendly state and the readers do not want lighthearted discussion of a topic they find so offensive in their hometown paper which could be read by children and families. Those attempting to infiltrate this state with these dangerous illegal drugs need to be prosecuted for the damage that they are attempting to do with drugs that are harmful to children and lead to worthless lives for adults.

The citizens agree that the scumbag Scott and the GOP leadership should be arrested and tried by the feds for passing laws enabling illegal drugs to be used in our family friendly state. These most horrible men are enabling our children to use these harmful, dangerous illegal drugs and need to be prosecuted for the damage that they are attempting to do.
