They need to legalize pot to counter the opioid epidemic in Appalachia and the South.
William O. Pate II

Good point, though even here in the more inland, rural and 'hillbilly' parts of northern California, where weed is legal, cheap and readily available, surprising how much demand there still is for the 'alternatives’. Everyone seems to have their drug of choice regardless, though agreed, legalization would still help. And I suspect it might also 'mellow' the local Southern culture and maybe reduce the old traditions of guns and violence over matters of 'honor’.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
