MINOT, N.D. — An opposition group has formed with the mission to defeat a ballot measure on North Dakota’s ballot which would legalize recreational marijuana.
This group is making a number of claims about the ill that would befall our state if legal pot is the law of the land. They’re talking about increased crime. Increased addiction. Easy access to the drug for children.
On this episode of Plain Talk, Fargo-based defense attorney Mark Friese, who is the treasurer for the pro-marijuana campaign, and who had a hand in drafting the measure itself, spoke to some of those criticisms.
