Law Times poll

Recreational marijuana use will be legalized, and lawyers say there will be an increase in terms of criminal charges and civil cases as a result. From the perspective on how this will impact the courts, do you support pot legalization?

No. The move to legalize marijuana is short-sighted, and will lead to negative social results, including longer court delays.
