SEACOAST ON LINE, NH - Using and selling marijuana would be legal under a bill debated by state legislators. The bill's sponsor, Rep. Charles Weed [sic] of Keene, told colleagues Wednesday that legalizing marijuana would give police more resources to tackle violent crime. He also said that existing laws governing marijuana are too harsh and lead to users being jailed with people who use or sell much more dangerous drugs, such as cocaine and heroin.

"If people are convicted for soft-drug use, they're in a problem for the rest of their lives," Weed, a Democrat, told the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee.
