Roger Wood Asks Is It Time To Legalize Pot?

Is it finally time for New Hampshire to join the other New England states in legalizing what is known as recreational marijuana use? Rep. Timothy Egan, D-Sugar Hill, thinks so. He is a state representative serving in the house in several Grafton county towns. He is also a staunch advocate of marijuana legalization for many reasons. And while he is joined by a majority of legislators in the House, that is not the case in the New Hampshire State Senate which has continually turned down cannabis legalization. Also governor Sununu opposes legalization. Podcast producer Roger Wood revisits the cannabis controversy with Egan, who espouses what he refers to as positives that other states have found from marijuana legalization.
