After the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested two men and recovered 78 pounds of marijuana, along with more than a dozen guns and $36,880 cash, some NOLA.com readers scoffed at what they considered petty arrests and a waste of taxpayer’s money. Freedom Fighter, for example, called for the legalization of marijuana, like Colorado has done: “End the lies and legalize nationally.”
Other readers cheered the arrests, at least because of the guns seizure. Wrote CrowBomb: “Forget the weed. I can’t wait to see how many of these guns were stolen. Hang ’em high! Good job, Sheriff!”
What do you think: Should Louisiana legalize marijuana?
