Today's 420 -- Clergy to Legislators: 'Just Say No'

HARTFORD, CT Clergy from across Connecticut came to Hartford on Friday to make a passionate pitch to legislators to resist backing the legalization of recreational marijuana.

While bills calling for legalization have made it through various committees, none have been called for a vote or even a debate on the House or Senate floor. And the clock is ticking toward the end of the legislative session at midnight, June 5.

The group of clergy on Friday urged legislators to resist the temptation or promised dollars that legalization would bring to the cash-starved state, stating that the cost of legalization would far outweigh the benefit.

1. Legalization is a great exposed of hypocrites

At least in New England. Parades of old cops and hand wringers from the 12 step industry, join in with the lower elements of the Booze Biz

2. I wonder why clergy are against weed...

I think people who indulge have a less fixed thought process, which dedicated fundimentalism requires.
