    Note to Kat Location: Pike County: I guess you didn't know how to spell marijuana so you started another post and called it pot...LOL! Note for Anonymous Location: ky on Jan 27, 2009 at 10:03 PM: Read your comments again. If you think it hasn't affected you, think again.

    I say they need to legalize it sell it.and take a cut of it to eliminate this debt and help the economy. Its just as harmfull to smoke tobaco and use tobaco products and its legal. Tax it and sale it

    Evil pot-What a joke.It grows wild every where in Kentucky.Its amazing that people like AC don't have clue?It was made ilegal too save Mr R.Hurst's fortune in tree farms.It had nothing to do with the pot.But its now known that 1 acre of pot makes enough fiber to repalce 4 acres of trees to make paper. Mr. AC you showed us how backwards you realy are.

    I am against drugs but, with the economy, lets face reality people. Everyone will do what they have to to do to survive. I will do what ever it takes to support my family. I have been unemployed since May of 08 due to downsizing, cannot find a job even tho I have 25 years of experience. Also I was evicted from a home that was rented and the landlord and judge of Rowan County knew I was unemployed. Their answer was they did not care. So leave the Gentleman alone and let him make his living however he see's fit. Also I have a small child a home. Somehow I have been able to survive thus far and hope I can continue to survive for my family until I find a JOB.
