I'm surprised there isn't going to be one in Hyannis.

Sounds like it won't be long before there will be a vote to legalize pot for recreational use! I don't this that is wise! Just my opinion!

The first step towards legalization to make more tax money. However, you reap what you sew! A lot of money will be needed for rehab in the future. Remember years ago cocaine was legal and the consequences were horrendous.
