What's Your Opinion?
Do you believe Medical Marijuana (MMJ) can have a role in preventing the over prescription of opioid painkillers and thus help fight opioid addiction? Do you agree that MMJ dispensaries must not be located within 1,000 feet of a public, private or parochial school or a day-care center?
