Dear Editor,

Our highways are dangerous enough with all the distractions and substance abuse behind the wheel. To list a few: texting; dumb/smartphone; putting on make-up; driving while intoxicated; driving while under the influence; eating &/or drinking; speeding; road rage, and the list goes on.

Now Governor Wolf wants to add one more; recreational use of marijuana. This adds one more greasy item to the already slippery slope we are on in this country. There is no objection to the medicinal use as long as it is prescribed & monitored by a physician. Most do not understand or know the difference between recreational and medicinal.

How about a recreational high on life like hiking, fishing, hunting, boating, baseball, etc. That’s probably too physical. Is it really necessary to dip this low to raise tax money?
