It is a shame about Huey Marshall. I won’t debate marijuana laws or even hazard a guess about what year North Carolina will put legalizing it on a ballot as other states are doing. He is accused of breaking the law, which is unacceptable in his position, or former position, as Brunswick County’s county attorney.
But I can understand why he might have done it: He had to work with county commissioners, and that can be stressful. I only have to sit through a couple meetings a month and often I could use a drink afterward.
