The political tide seems to be shifting around the nation about legalizing marijuana. Our neighbors in Massachutes will legalize recreational marijuana in July and Vermont it will be legal to grow and possess small amounts of marijuana in July as well. The Albany County D.A. office will conduct a series of meeting to discuss the idea of marijuana legalization.

These meetings will give residents of Albany County an opportunity to ask questions and discuss public safety concerns about marijuana legalization and the future of marijuana laws and prosecution. In addition to the public meetings, Albany County residents are also invited to take an online survey to share opinions on the topic. ...
