Been around folks who are stoned & you know why it's called dope

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily sun,

High times in N.H.I hate to spoil anyone's buzz but if you ever smoked POT or been around a bunch of people who are stoned ,you understand why they call it dope. Don't get me wrong, what an adult lights up in their home is their own business. It's what going to happen on our roads and in our schools if pot is made legal, and easier to get, that concerns me.

We have all had close calls while driving with jerks crossing the yellow line while yapping or their cells or texting, add to that a half smoked joint in the ashtray and that is asking for trouble. Ask any high school teacher, they have enough glassey-eyed, stoned kids in their classrooms as it is, we don't need them getting into mom and dad's stash.

The lawmakers in Concord should give this some more thought before we all start driving down 93 with the song Rockey Mountain High blasting on our radios.
