To the Editor:
Recently I read an editorial in the Washington Times that spoke about our state’s proposed 2015 budget. “Perhaps no governor introduced a more irresponsible budget, or intends to pay for it in more irresponsible ways than Governor Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island.”
On the same day, I also read in the Providence Journal that the General Assembly is pushing to legalize pot to generate more revenue. This follows on the heels of a medical research report from Harvard and John Hopkins Medical School, which concludes, without doubt, that marijuana used continually by young people causes “brain damage.” Our legislators are as blind and “stupid” as our governor!
