poll: Do You Favor Legalized Marijuana and Taxation in Rhode Island?

Do You Favor Legalized Marijuana and Taxation?


The Governor of Colorado is warning other Governors that the legalization of marijuana is a far more complicated issue than expected -- while RI Governor Lincoln Chafee is pitching the concept of passing legalization legislation to generate revenue for the state.

Governor John Hickenlooper (D-CO) told governors at the National Governors meeting to go slow when considering legislation to legalize marijuana. "When governors have asked me, and several have, I say that we don't have the facts. We don't know what the unintended consequences are going to be and we're going to regulate it every way we can. What I do is urge caution. Make sure you look at it very thoroughly."

With legislation pending in the Rhode Island General Assembly, Chafee supporting the concept and Rhode Island potentially losing tens of millions in casino revenue - should Rhode Island legalize and tax the sale of marijuana?
