If an area legislator has his way, those caught with small amounts of marijuana in a car will face fines 10 times greater than Massachusetts voters backed last November.
State Sen. Scott Brown, R-Wrentham, wants to make it harder on pot smokers through legislation he filed in January. His bill would mandate a fine of no less than $1,000 for any amount of marijuana in the passenger area of a motor vehicle as well as a 90-day suspension of a driver’s license.

Why is that legislators feel they know more than the voters of their constituency? 65 percent of state voters approved Question 2, which decriminalized the possession of less than an ounce of marijuana and provided for a civil summons and fined $100. Let Sen. Brown know you do not appreciate his meddling with the will of the People he serves.
