THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants to decriminalize marijuana possession for people who purchase and use the drug across New York State, including St. Lawrence County. Although no specific amount of the drug has been cited, Cuomo says it would be for “small amount” of pot. Cuomo says he will advance legislation amending the state’s marijuana drug laws by removing the criminal penalties that often result in the over-prosecution and jailing of non-violent individuals. The change would not reduce penalties for people who illegally supply and sell marijuana.
Do you want to see marijuana possession for users decriminalized?
Results will be posted Jan. 30.
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
Do you believe the proposed wind power farms for the Hopkinton and Parishville townships would change the character of the area?
