Legal pot contributing to insidious drug culture

I have lived in Carson City for 60 years. I have witnessed many drug crises, from LSD, cocaine, meth and alcohol.

According to the official election results, 51.57 percent of voters voted against the recreational use of marijuana. Supposedly, in a democratic society, the majority rules?

This community does not need any more substance abuse than it already has.

As a compromise, why not postpone the approval at this time until the 2018 election to see if the attitude of the community has changed.
