On Wednesday, the 434th session of the Maryland General Assembly will convene. On the docket? Legalizing Marijuana.

We asked readers of the Dundalk Patch Facebook page to weigh in on this hot button issue. Here's what a few of them had to say:

Carol Baker Virgilio says, "I hope they do...it would bring a lot more money back to the state."

Georgia Melvin-Poling says, "They will if it can be taxed." She adds, "No, it should not be legalized, but not because of taxes, because its a drug."

Don Dillon says, "Wait until they see the boatload of cash Colorado is taking in." 

David Schaffer says, "Really? Who cares. Maryland has much larger problems."

Should Maryland legalize Marijuana? Well, I think a more difficult question would be to explain to me how my fellow humans believe that they have a power and authority of above that of God to ban a species? Another would be: Why do we as a society allow the violation of the Freedom of Religion by banning marijuana? Or why do we as a society allow the violation of the 4th Amendment of the Constitution by using drug screening in order to starve a minority group into behavioral obedience while individuals who drink every night are deemed trustworthy enough by employers not to arrive to work not drunk?

If these fools in Annapolis can figure out that legalization of marijuana will increase tax revenue they will be all over it.

everything man makes is bad for you. this is a plant that was here before man, and will again thrive when we are gone. there shouldn't be a heavy tax on it. whatever alcohol n tobacco is would b just fine even though it grows just like all the untaxed farm crops we been eatin our whole life. people could easily grow it at home to avoid taxes. the black market isnt gonna go anywhere if the country dicks us harder than street dealers id rather pay untaxed 20 for a gram rather than 26 with taxes myself. greedy people cant spend the money right then dick the tax payers even the pot smoking taxing payers.
