Letter: Legalizing marijuana will damage state’s image


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

When I first moved to New Mexico in 1969, drive-in liquor windows were legal despite New Mexico having a serious DWI problem.

These no longer exist. However, now New Mexico may legalize another mind-numbing drug, which will surely add to our DWI problem, which is the worst in the USA Legalizing marijuana will also further stress our already overloaded courts and police.

The justification for this is it will add revenue to our state coffers and perhaps keep more dealers out of prison.

New Mexico already has a bad image problem. Let’s not make it worse by legalizing marijuana.
