Should Marijuana be legalized, available only for medical use, or remain an illegal substance? What are the pros and cons? What do we stand to lose or gain as a society?  How will our children be impacted?

The debate rages on....Our guest tonight on the 49th Parallel -- Rep. Diane Russell (D) of Maine. Rep. Russell plans to introduce a bill that will legalize marijuana in Maine.  

"Russell says by legalizing the drug it allows the state to control the market which is out of control on the street and in essence take the drugs out of the hands of children.  Opponents argue the legalization is both irresponsible and not good public policy." -- WGME13 News

As a former drug abuser, host Jim Bouchard's thoughts on the issue may surprise you!

And the Canadian perspective? Jon Hansen's PI Window on Business' poll has to date received 474 votes.. Close to 90% of all respondents vote yes to legalize pot.
