Community talks marijuana, agriculture, film and tax cuts during town hall

Distilled down to a few concepts, community members told their local legislators that they'd like to see the state spend more responsibly - maybe with an eye toward a few local special interests - and that marijuana regulation needed careful attention, though how new rules should be split between personal consumption, medical use and potential criminalization was far from clear.
