BOSTON (AP) — The widow of a state trooper killed by a driver accused of driving under the influence of marijuana is making an emotional plea against a ballot question that would legalize recreational pot. Trooper Thomas Clardy, a father of seven, was killed in March when a medical marijuana patient crashed his vehicle into Clardy's cruiser. In a new web video, Reisa Clardy said she believes there will be more accidents and more fatalities if voters approve Question 4 on the Nov. 8 ballot. The driver, David Njuguna, of Webster, has pleaded not guilty to manslaughter, operating under the influence of drugs and other charges in Thomas Clardy's death. When he was arraigned in May, Njuguna's lawyer, Peter Ettenberg, said Njuguna "absolutely denies he was under the influence of any drugs." Ettenberg declined to comment further Tuesday.

Why not legalise heroin too? After all "it's just a plant", just like cannabis is "just a plant".
Or opium? (Same plant as heroin)
Plants can't be dangerous.

yes it's a plant but its purified in a lab. anything purified to a pure substance like sugar is bad and addicting. ever heard of people chewing coca leaves? I am against " Dabbing " but weed is not really that bad coming from someone who used it and no longer does ( It's not addicting ) by the way people eat poppy seeds, a reply to: TerryDon79
Has making it illegal made it any worse?
